You can buy a normal pit board at put a carbon wrap on it... Although it won't be perfectly smooth.

Look close to the Arrowmax. Basically it has a honycomb frame made from aluminium with on top a thin layer of carbon and on the bottom a sheet of lexan. The aluminium frame can be made by a CNC machine or a watercutter and thin (0.5mm) carbon sheet is not that expensive.

You can get variously sized carbon sheet from eBay. May be worth making your own if itís decent quality.

Would anyone be interested in a Pit Board like this? Would be 6mm carbon with bubble levels on both x and y-axis, and adjustable legs to achieve a level surface. This is just a render mind you
