Introduction: Custom Tech Deck Board

how to make a custom board for your skating pleasure

Step 1: Get a Board

to do this you need a board so you can make on like "power" does or mod an old one

Step 2: Sand It Down

sand down your board this might not be neccesary but I did it then i used a knife to make it even cleaner looking(picture 2)

Step 3: Next Design Your Board

its best to do this on paper and not the board first if your stumped like i was you can make up a company if you have a printer(i don't) you can find some cool ones on google images if you search skate decks so i made up a company called HaZmAtKersplaT and has a logo you probably want a logo too mine was a hazard sign in a splat circle

Step 4: Pick Your Best

pick your favorite design mine was my company name and on the ends my logo

Step 5: Put It on the Board

put paper on the board you could spray paint it but i have no spray paint so i glued paper to the board with loctite also i put on my wheels and stuff to get them the right space

Step 6:

put on your design and then clear coat it if you are unsatisfied you can multicoat it then sand to likeness

Step 7:

Fineto! Finale! Done! Finished!

Mine didn't. Are you using fine or rough sandpaper?

I don't really know what this is showing us, because it isn't very clear. You seem to start with a decorated board and end up with an un-decorated pink one. I don't see "mine was my company name and on the ends my logo" in your last picture (Fineto! Finale! Done! Finished!)? L

. I agree with L - it really doesn't show/explain how to do anything and the pics are terrible. Flagged as incomplete.
. Good idea, just very poorly implemented.

when you do this you are sanding and getting all the print off the bottom and then put yours on DUH!
