I would agree about applying stain before lay up. I suggest thinning it down heaps with acetone so it soaks deep into the veneer. Use softer wood for the same reason.
I thin it right down then do multiple coats to build up the colour. Work it in with a rag and you get the stain going all the way through the veneer.
After a few day I then press it with some resin worked into it and some heat so it soaks up resin and comes out flat and tough.
You don’t get any surprises out of the press then either.
I also sand the back a bit before layup. Use a course grit to really key it in so it bonds really well.

I’ve had issues with hard wood like walnut cracking during riding hard, so this is why I’m trying the stains, I can then use soft wood like pine for everything

Looks like your photobucket account got locked or disabled.

So looks like I just caught up with the photobucket rubbish of them killing off free third party sharing.
So I've now got imgur and have replaced the images on this thread. Just got to get the sizes right now, they end up bigger from Imgur.

So it seems the spoon base of the latest build (the red veneer swallowtail) was definitely not a problem on firm snow.
I received a screenshot from the owner of his ski tracker app.
He hit a top speed of 94 Kph.
Not bad for a little 149cm swallowtail powder board.
