  1. Hand made semi hollow longboard skateboard

    I make these semi hollow boards, they are hand shaped and built completely from scratch. The boards are designed to feel more like a surfboard than the bendy cruisers that are out there. The designs are all original and double as art and grip, whether barefoot or wearing shoes. hope you like!
  2. The "Peeping Tom"

    Another Longboard Complete. This one is a 4-way Myrtle Burl bookmatch with a lovoa inlay. Its 39.5" X9.5" drop through. Can't wait to try this one out. My only regret is not being a better photographer. The pictures just don't do it justice.
  3. Longboard

    My daughter and I were watching Youtube one day when we stumbled across a video of a girl on her longboard. She was freestyle dancing on it while riding. ( ) My daughter was immediately interested. She asked me if she could have a longboard of her own. I then got the idea that I could make...
  4. Longboard/skateboard holder

    Have you ever stepped on a skateboard left on the floor of your garage? I don't recommend it! Hence the rapid construction of this longboard holder from a few leftover pieces of fir baseboard and drawer knobs. I am always catching my long boarder daughters without their helmets. They always use...
  5. The Bamboozle

    Bamboo and poplar longboard. i harvested the bamboo myself from the bamboo (stalk?)! it probably took around 8 hours to make, including the paintjob i also did. there is a layer of fiberglass on top to strengthen the joints. If you have any questions dont be afraid to ask! sorry im kind of in a...
  6. 42" Rock maple longboard

    this was a project me and couple friends undertook over the summer. All of us being longboard enthusiasts and me being a woodworker, we decided to give a go at building our own. we came up with the design ourselves and transferred it to a long piece of high density Styrofoam and carved with a...

    My cool younger bro wanted to make longboards back when they were the hottest college accessory. Make them we did. Maple and mahogany.
  8. New Burled Wood Longboard

    This is the Last longboard I completed. The top veneer sheet is some sort of burled wood I got from a friend, but I'm not quite sure what type of wood it is… any ideas?
  9. GRIPcarve Longboards

    Some hardwood longboards I've been making and selling lately. The carving actually acts as the griptape so you get to look at the nice carving while you ride! Let me know ya'lls thoughts! Thanks for looking!
  10. More Skateboards! (from 2x4's)

    Been making some skateboards lately! All of these decks are "planks" made from a single 2×4 each. You can see the way they are glued up in the first picture. The hardware (trucks, wheels, bearings) was purchased from Amazon. These longboards are for sidewalk cruising, not bombing down hills...
  11. longboard 1.0 : loyal dean style

    my first real woodworking project, and I was quite ambitious. I didn't want to make a longboard with just plywood, so I decided to make one with a plywood core and outer layers composed of oak and some other types of wood. The bending process was difficult, since I don't have all the right...
  12. Longboards

    Made 2 longboards for my girlfriend and her sister. The other one was made a while back for myself. They picked their design and my girlfriend woodburned designs on the boards. I glued 4 1/16 in pieces of birch plywood together to make the boards. Went cruising in San Diego and they work great!
  13. Sapele and Madrona Skate Deck

    Finally I was able to make a longboard for myself. Sapele and Madrona finished with polyeurathane and wax. My own design. Just a simple plank with wheels.
  14. Longboard Build. Part 1

    The build-up started with laminating two layers of 5-ply to obtain plyability and strength. I drew the pattern for the board on paper, then transferred it to the "deck" once the glue had cured. Using a jigsaw, I cut the board to the patterned shape, then rounded over all edges with the router...
  15. Longboard Build, Part 2

    The next step was to layout the placement for the trucks (axles), then drill. With all cutting, drilling and staining complete, I sprayed 3 coats of clear over the entire deck, wet-sanding between coats, then mounted the trucks, bearings and wheels. I applied griptape to the top, then used...
  16. Longboard build

    My 11 y.o. son has recently asked me for a longboard. Obviously, I didn't consider buying - that would mean missing all the fun :-) It took us a few weeks to prepare - drive to local lumber yard for 1/8" birch plywood, order grip tape, hardware and spray paint online, pick deck shape and design...
  17. Longboard

    home for the holidays so i made this longboard out of 4 1/8 in sheets of baltic birch. used Lucid Grip on the top of the board and varnish on the bottom. the other board is a balance board (balance on a pvc pipe). 1 Thessalonians 4:11
  18. Longboards

    I finally got my new vacuum press in action and started pumpin' out the longboards. They are a 7 ply maple core with 2 cross grain and 5 long grain plies. The 8th an 9th layer are more decretive veneers. (Japanese Ash, Lovoa, Claro Walnut burl, quilted maple, and bubinga). In stead of grip...
  19. Land Surfing!

    This is a longboard skateboard. This one is made for cruising! We went with a surfboard shape and paint scheme. It is made from 2x cutoffs laminated together on the edges and planed to about 5/8" thick. I fiberglassed the bottom for strength. I used simple latex paint, wiped on, for the...
