Robert Braun-
Blue Shed Shaping
– Second 3DM System
Blue Shed Shaping designs and shapes precision water craft from conception to reality, with the use of the world’s best shaping machine…3DM! After years of hand shaping we purchased our first 3DM Machine System in 2009 for the Kite & Wind surf industries.  Since the world wide explosion of
SUP’s, the time had come to invest in an additional 3DM System in 2011.  John designed and engineered a machine that not only meets but surpasses the demands of this global phenomenon.  Blue Shed Shaping is proud to say that with the use of a 3DM System, we offer shaping services of up to 22 ft,having the largest machine in the Pacific Northwest.
3DM! …Engineering the best for the best!
