The skateboard deck is 3/4” and made from a tree branch of a 150 year old English Elm tree. I cut and shaped it and carved out a lightening bolt but instead of a wood inlay I used epoxy resin tinted with purple mica pigment then coated the whole thing with epoxy resin and put 180mm trucks and 73mm wheels with speed bearings.
