Here is a video I did the other night. I apologize for the picture quality when the camera zooms in! I am doing this with my digital camera i take pictures with, so it isn't the best quality. Anyhow feel free to add comments, suggestions, ideas, or feel free to ask any and all questions!!

Chris, that again was a great vid. Sure looks like it was not your first one to board, lol, and you slowed down so it could be seen good too. Thanks for your time making these as it is a pleasure to watch all that you do.
Chris, another great "How TO" Video. Nothing like watching someone who knows what they are doing to help the new trappers or older ones who are just now wanting to put up fur. Only suggestion I have is that you show how you make your board, I have not seen that displayed anywhere, so would really set yours farther ahead. Tom
...the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing....
Thanks for the tip Tom!! I have made boards two different ways; with a stencil, and by hand. I will see if i can cover both of them. I know the one by hand takes a little while to do, but heck the guy who puts up about 6 beaver a year shouldn't have to buy the stencil if he knows how to make a board or two by hand! Again great tip Tom and thanks for the review!
The beam in the video is 12" but i have fleshed many many beaver on a 7" beam. I have also fleshed a ton of beaver using the necker 600. IMO they are about equal in quality. I just happen to be using the tim rose knife that day when fleshing. When using a smaller beam, you end up taking smaller strips at a time, and the pelt likes to fall off of the board from time to time. Feel free to ask any questions!!
