Carbon Fiber & Pallet Wood Roof Rack Customization – Wind Deflector & End Caps

Carbon Fiber & Pallet Wood Roof Rack Customization – Wind Deflector & End Caps

remember this stuff? I saved a few of these
sheets from when I made those coasters editing Jackman add a coaster in there in post anyway so here is the plan replacing the ugly black
plastic wind deflector on my roof rack with this now don’t forget to thoroughly mix mix mix
mix mix mix mix mix mix mix mix mix mix and scrape so we’ve got the wind deflector here cut
out to look just like the original and next I’m going to inlay that piece of
carbon fiber that I just created so I went ahead and cut out this trapezoidal
test piece on my x-carve to follow with the lines of the pallet wood diamonds
now this test piece of plywood was to check the size and the angles to make
sure that all matched up but I also did some depth tests here to determine what
was the perfect depth for the pocket so once I inlay the carbon fiber it’ll be
perfectly flush with the top of the wood surface so the next step here is cutting
out the carbon fiber trapezoid on the x-carve the trapezoid is drawn up here
in easel with some blocks that are at a zero inch depth so it just means it
won’t cut on those lines that don’t need to be cut and then this one here we got
in the wood that’s a fill cut versus an outline cut like this one let’s go hey guys thanks for watching and thanks
to total boat for making this video possible
TotalBoat really save the day on this one this project is covered in held
together injected with Totalboat’s epoxies adhesives and finishes and not
to be outdone by my X-Carve CNC which cut wood epoxy carbon fiber and Corian
for this project now I recommend total boat for all of your epoxy finish and
adhesive needs all the products that I used are linked down below
and with the code Jackmanyou get 20% off all those products plus everything
else at and if you don’t follow along with my Instagram feed at
Jackman_works #alwaysbeplugging I very reluctantly
replaced the Honda Element recently and the new car is great but it just lacks
in the character that the Element always seemed to exude now this project was
inspired by the diamond pattern pallet wood coasters that I made about a year
ago so if you haven’t seen that video go check that out now and the roof rack and
ladder rack end caps were because well the stock ones just weren’t sexy enough
well that’s it for this one thanks as always and I will see you next time

  2. I'm sorry, but there wasn't enough pain and suffering in this video Paul. This one just seems way too straight forward and you even had to invent drama with that break ๐Ÿ˜› j/k Great work as usual. Glad to see you are not torturing yourself (pencils) on this project!

  3. Super awesome looking project Paul, keep up the good work! Also; I still don't see a problem using wet rags to remove glue

  4. I was just thinking about doing something similar to this and then I see a new Jackman video pop up on my screen and it's this. Pretty awesome! #palletwoodlife ๐Ÿ˜€

  5. Looks great. How did the wood hold up in operation?

  6. Another fine video! I got a kick out of the mixing montage ๐Ÿคฃ funny as usual keep up the awesome work dude๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿฝ

  7. He' pressing epoxy as he would wood glue but I've hear on other channels that epoy is different than wood: it shouldn't be pressed hard at all. Just contact, not pressure.

  8. Very nice… Any editing software you use

  9. Another super fun project and video Paul! The carbon fiber added such a nice touch!ย  Haha if the trucks a rockin…

  10. Now, don't forget to thoroughly mix, mix, mix, mix, mix, mix, mix, mix, mix, mix, mix, mix, mix, mix, mix, and scrape.

  11. Like ๐Ÿ–’๐Ÿ–’๐Ÿ–’๐Ÿ–’๐Ÿ–’๐Ÿ–’๐Ÿ–’๐Ÿ–’

  12. you look like Hellboy with that mask on.

  13. The wind deflector looks awesome, and the end caps turned out great! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป …… nice rack Paul!

  14. Who the hell is John Mills?

  15. Great Jack ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  16. Very nice. Careful with that carbon fiber though, the dust can be really harmful if you arent wearing a respirator or cutting it in a water bath.

  17. hello jack i like your creative make and your editing video ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ soufiane from morroco โค

  18. Fantastic video and nice project ๐Ÿ‘

  19. Je suis franรงais et je regarde tes vidรฉos et elle sont vraiment trรจs trรจs bien !! J'adore ๐Ÿ˜

  20. "… just weren't sexy enough." — Paul Jackman, making woodworking Sexy.

  21. The Element is gone! I just fixed the rear suspension arms on one. They were setting like stance nation.

    How do you like the Ridgeline? It's appealing when the wife's Baja has to go.

  22. Looks great, Paul. Nicely done. Excellent editing, as usual.

  23. Another amazing video and project!

  24. 4:45 Thixo is what they used to call me in High School

  25. Love your videos! Always entertaining and informing. Recently bought a pair of Carolina boots because of your constant support for their product. Very comfortable boot!

  28. I had to replace my element only because I needed to get three kids in the back. The element was great in every other aspect. Putting a car seat in wasnโ€™t as easy as in a car with regular doors but car seat are a pain in general to put in.

  29. Cool idea. Nice job!

  30. Scarf joint, laminating, Total Boat, Thixo? I thought that Louis S. was back. Maybe it is time to build a palletwood boat in your backyard. Sort of like "acorn to shipping pallet to China, back to US, to Jackman"

  31. Hey Jackman you've got yourself a nice rack….

  32. The roof rack wiggle was hilarious!!! You are one of the best creators on YouTube

  33. Nice Rack… 2:03 made me do a double take as to what you were doing haha.

  34. Looks top notch, hope it has the strength needed over time, there's a lot of joints to fail. Maybe some fibreglass mat on the rear if it breaks (again!). Love the editing job, really is a pleasure to watch.

  35. Mitico, seguirti รจ un piacere.. grande

  36. Cool๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  37. To make your own, just follow this simple 103 step process.

  38. If this cars a Rockin', don't bother Knockin'.

  39. Sweet as heck!

    Are you at all concerned it may break, like in the video, without something holding the wood together in the back?

  40. Custom carbon fiber is pretty neato!!!

  41. The problem with that in some countries is that they need to get an inspection before being allowed with that on the street.

  42. ะณะฐะดั‘ะฝั‹ัˆ

  43. LOVE your videos! Such beauty and fun stuff evolve into awesome products created by you!!! Peace and Good Fortune to you and your family.

  44. Thats some pretty insanely good editing skills there man!
    Fantastic vid! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ‘

  45. Lovely work buddy, looks very cool on the new truck!

  46. "Don't forget to mix" lol. a new Jackman classic

  47. Great video, as usual!

  48. Best thumbnail ever! โ˜๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜

  49. That piece of the pallet wood snapped off super easy – maybe reinforce the whole back side with carbon fiber. Also, when using resin on composite materials such as carbon fiber or fiberglass, try using less resin. Less resin leaves a stronger end product. More resin leaves your end product weaker due to the higher level of part being brittle. Just a few tips from my aircraft repair days,,,,

  50. I know I always comment the same thing but man, this editing! Love it! โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

  51. Is it possible to fall in love with how a video is edited? Because I swear it happens every time I watch a video!

  52. Itโ€™s been soooo long since Iโ€™ve had my sexy jackman fix! So nice

  53. Looks good Paul! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Ž

  54. Me encantan tu videos, saludos desde CHile.

  55. humour et talent…j'adore !
    big up

  56. Always a pleasure to watch s Jackman Works video. Interesting projects and innovative filming.

  57. All this work just to be replaced by a pallet wood veneered Tesla triangle on wheels.

  58. Wow cool video. Can wait to see what you make next.

  59. At 1:30 it sounded like he was mad at me.

  60. Total Boat ๐Ÿ‘

  61. Great as always. While not part of the project, I love the shot of you driving through the water.

  62. Mix!

    And scrape…

    Well done Paul! – Jim

  63. Long live the Element!

  64. Looks awesome! I love the great trick of cutting a bigger trapezoid on the carbon fiber and making it fit in the wood cutout! Just had to match the angles.

  65. You just have so much creative energy and way too much time… lol You rock complicated … and man the crazy tools you have!

  66. Wow! Did that make your truck faster? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  67. You are the master editor! : ) So entertaining! That's a cool air deflector. Go TotalBoat! Mahalo for sharing. : )

  68. I consulted some doctors and they all agreed: This channel suffers from a very bad case of Acute Underrated-ness. The cure for it is to quadruple the subscriber amount. Get well soon.

  69. That truck will never be Jackman enough – there isn't any orange on it.

  70. Do you speed up your videos by a little bit? It sorta seems like it. Also, if you advertise something mid-video with those cool animations and bubbles, keep the text there a bit longer, I had to scroll back every time bc I didnt have time to read and then look what you were advertising! Other than that – those TotalBoat products seem incredible if they can hold such a delicate piece of wood together through the weather and wind! Great job to both of you!

  71. First off awesome idea. Secondly I think this is your best editing job on a video yet! Great vid man. Bravo!

  72. Dude. This is creative and awesome. A-B-P Always be plugging. Ha! Love it!

  73. You're great and know wath you'll make!

  74. This was a really great video. I loved all the CNC and traditional working methods combined.

  75. Awesome mate, thanks for continued refreshing ideas and excellent skills.

  76. I like the uncomfortable eye contact. Thank you…
