DIY deck
Anybody ever have a go at making a deck? I'm going to give it a go. Something simple at first. No drastic shapes maybe a basic pintail with a bit of flex. The only thing that concerns me is getting hold if the correct ply wood. I can get my hands on tons of sheets of ply from work but it's not very exotic stuff. No birch or maple but it's ok with a nice grain to it. Just hoping it's strong enough. It's 6mm thick so I will have to sandwich maybe 2 or 3 sheets together to get the strength but I'm hoping just 2 will be fine because 3 will make it 18mm thick! Any tips and ideas will be very welcomed

I'm not one for kick tails but some concave would be cool. How thick is too thick? 18mm?

I think its fine but it depends on your weight. And for a second opinion I'd talk to @smokysolis
