    G10 is fiber glass composite laminate consisting of a continuous filament glass cloth material with an epoxy resin binder. It's most well known use is for mother-boards for computers.

    Bamboo could be an option - you could also buy a carbon sandwich panel or sheets of carbon - this place sells both: http://www.protechcomposites.com/sandwich-panels/

    You could do the ergo shape by using two pieces that you seam with a bent joint of aluminum or abs.

    yep, marine plywood would be a great choice for me. (And it would be consistent with my love of ships!)

    I sit on hardwood. Have forever. It does weigh some if you are concerned about weight. HOWEVER, I am having BIG problems with the life of Stimulite Sport cushion. I can only get 6-8 months life out of cushion before I need to replace it. I end up with my ass bones, I think, practically sitting against the hardwood. I like these cushions and think I am on 3-4. I am tired of spending the money to continually replace the cushion. I QUESTION if the wood insert is the issue with the life of the cushion. I am now looking into going to a CF or another solid set base in hopes that would solve life of cushion issue.

    The wood insert or probably any other insert has the ability to move. It is not rigidly attached to anything. I think that creates wear and other issues. Anything not rigidly attached, I think asking for problems. I think this is what I have.

    Before trying CF, does it make sense to try securing the wood to the frame with Velcro like other threads suggested for CF?
