<p>Is that acrylic or polycarbonate?</p>
Hey cool project would it still work without the plixi?
<p>I agree. It's not really made of cardboard if the structural integrity comes from plexiglas. Cool project though</p>
I've been looking to make something like this for a long time
you need to flip your front truck
This is cool. Nothing against you, but for the contest limits, this is excellent. But for riding, doing tricks, and ramps this might break easily especially on grinds. Overall, for what you used, this is AWESOME!
Very cool design, but would it be possible to make a concave shape to it and a kick tail? if not this is still a cool DIY project<br />
&nbsp;thinking about that as well, maybe if you clamped it with something underneath so that it had a concave shape.
One of my friends did that :) It works!
you would need a vacuum press to make the tail(and nose if you wanted) im not sure about pressing plexiglass though
ur dogs real cute <br>
you put one of the trucks on backward in this picture, and um, why make a baord out of cardboard when you can use oh say, wood?<br />
hay be nice. he is just making something he is interested in. dont put him down for doing something that ovbiously sparked your interest as well noting that you commented on this instructable... <br>
thanks @jfulutze ;)
here we go again <br> <br>Previous Comment: <br>Good eye sir... if you look the trucks arn't even bolted in place, this pictures was taken when the board was still in the mock-up stage. The reason I went with cardboard was because it was for a contest where the materials where limited to cardboard and gorilla glue.
i wanna make this for a grass board <br>

Cool beans!
Does it support an average persons weight? <br>
Not really a cardboard skateboard if you used plexiglass
do u have any sub for pexiglass? houshold item if posible <br>
you can prob use think ply wood, a different skate board, or anything flat, hard and big
Is there an alternative to plexiglass? Thanks in advance :)
are those randals? it's hard to tell from a distance........
not to be mean, but wouldnt it break or bend easily?<br />
this makes me nervous
I'll post a video soon...it might make you less nervous
