  1. Custom Vanity

    I built a pair of these vanities last week and man were these drawers a lot of work. There was about a 4"difference in size between the two, so all the drawers were different sizes. What a pain! I think I spent most of the time on the drawer fronts. I made the feet out of some crown molding...
  2. Bamboo Skateboards

    2 1/2 years ago I posted some images of a few skateboards that I thought in a few more months, I would have a product line I could bring to the market place. Well, I might not be realistic when it comes to time, but I am persistent.
  3. 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...
  4. 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...
  5. Son's Handmade Skateboard

    I gave my 7-year-old son a bunch of skateboard parts for Christmas last year after he said he wanted to build his own board from scratch. I finally got around to getting the skateboard veneers over the summer (parent epic fail), and we were off. I provided a guiding hand (or hands) throughout...
  6. Save The Children: Skateboard Deck

    The creation of the skateboard decks (shown in the project photos) has been a labour of love: the deck on the right is a birthday present for my son who works at EA Games in BC and the one on the left is being donated to our ""Save The Children Fall Philanthropy Event. The Wood The deck is made...
  7. Skateboard Speaker MP3 Player

    I have always enjoyed skateboarding as a kid and also enjoy listening to my favourite tunes. So i thought way not think of an idea of combining the two and this is what I cam up with. I used plywood, did kerf cutting and used maple veneer. For a how to video for this project click Here: Part 1...
  8. Skateboard

    My son has never shown much intrest in my work, it has always seemed boring to him. What I am hoping is that he will see that he can make whatever he wants. He's a teenager now so I will have to wait and see if by combining his skateboarding and woodworking will get him interested. I carved the...
  9. 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...
  10. Long Board

    Just a quick one to get me going here (and the only photo I had handy). When his old deck snapped, an afternoon with a funky piece of maple ply, and several days of varnishing got my son back on board. He picked the cut pattern and finish color, and yes, grip tape was added after this photo.
  11. 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
  12. Shark Skateboard - Weekend Parent/Child class at Marc Adams School

    This summer it was my Youngest boys turn to come with me to Marc Adams School. We took the Skateboard Building Class with Chris Gochnour where you had the choice of building a longboard cruiser or skateboard. He decided he really wanted his board to look like a shark. Start to Fully Finished...
  13. DIY Skateboard

    I saw someone post some DIY skateboards on this forum a few months ago. They inspired me to make one. I did more research and possibly went a bit overboard and made a press to create a concave and tail for the birch deck. This was a present for my 7 year old nephew for Christmas. I plan on...
  14. something a bit different - skateboard

    this is my first attempt at a "real skateboard". the project started out about 1 year ago, as a quick repair of my sons original skateboard which quickly turned into a full-blown production line of boards. well - we stopped at 2!!! the possibilities were endless, just that the quantity of my...
  15. 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...
  16. "Relic"

    I signed up to do a skate deck for a skate deck art exhibit, Decked Out, that is opening this Friday (11/18/16). This is my first non-house-oriented piece after getting the new shop up and running. I really wanted to showcase the material instead of just painting a picture on the board. The...
  17. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I purchased a rikon 70-220vrs today at Johnson's Workbench Wood Expo. The deal was to good to pass up $525.00 was the show price. I have not seen it any less than $599.00 and it usually is priced at $649.00 which does not include shipping of 59 to 79 dollars. So I think I saved at least $186.00...

My pleasure turned to great joy when my son was fascinated by the skateboard deck and it became his birthday present...
