How long does it take to build a board?

The actual hours that you spend building your board will depend on the complexity of the board you are building and the choices you make about customizing the finish, but you can count on the total falling somewhere between fifty and eighty hours. This time will be applied to the project in smallish chunks as you must wait for epoxy to cure before moving on to subsequent steps. Many kit builders will reserve an hour in the morning and/or evening before and after school or work as well as time over weekends.
