Having the pleasure of building at skateboard deck at Roarockit, with Ted and Norah, was just the beginning of my journey with the “Save the Children” challenge. My pleasure turned to great joy when my son was fascinated by the skateboard deck and it became his birthday present.

2 skateboards; 1 finished; 1 to go. Skateboard 1: logo was created using the Omni-Gel process and I think it has turned out quite well. Skateboard 2: I couldn’t get a photo copy today to repeat the process and my backup plan is a plastic window decal that you print on. The plastic is like the material used with overhead projectors.
