While repairing it

I pulled up a triangular section and was impressed with how little glass is on the thin bamboo veneer. The linear grain will naturally split lengthwise so it should have unidirectional glass underneath going at right angles but light unidirectional cloth is probably a lot more expensive.
Does your board have a flat deck or one with a lower foot area where the deck curves up fore and aft? I wonder if there's more glass under the foot area and cracked area has less glass.
