All of our shapes start with a rough cut by the CNC (Aku Shaping Machine). After the board has been cut to perfection, it is refined by hand and delivered straight to our sander, and then our glasser. The use of the CNC guarantees our customers with consistency between shapes. However, the art of hand shaping has not been lost yet. If a customer prefers a hand shaped board, our shapers specialize in that artistry as well.
