Introduction: Finger Snowboard Instructable

Finally the instructable for the finger snowboard shown in my slideshow (improved!).

Step 1: The Parts You Will Need...

The picture shows all you need apart from another couple of sheets and some simple office tape!

Step 2: Design...

I guess everybody likes a different design, but the basic things are:

-You have to make it large enough so that the ends of the bindings do not go off the edges too much.
-Long enough to accustom both of the bindings without the being squashed together; but not too long.
-Nice round edges.

Most of it is common sense really...

Step 3: Making the Deck (part 1)

-You now have your template. Cut this out.
-Now take a new sheet of paper and fold so you get some good thick stuff to cut from.
-Check if it can accustom the width of your board.
-Trace around the template on your thick stuff.

Perfect...

Step 4: Making the Deck (part 2)

-Before cutting out everything staple the whole lot as shown. You will want to staples on each side to bend when making the tail and the nose.
-When you have this cut out!

Step 5: Making the Deck (part 3)

Now the final part...

-Circle lots of tape round it to make a nice, hard structure.
-Bend the nose and the tail.
-Bend those staples to to make to board keep it's shape.

There... You have the deck!

Step 6: The Bindings

You will have to custom make the bindings for each finger.

-First you cut a square of paper approximately what I have shown you.
-Roll it round your finger etc... To make it look like what is on the photos.
-You then ensure it's sturdiness using tape and make it look better with strips of paper. It's common sense really...
-Do not make the bindings to large, long, high etc...

Make two of these...

Step 7: Stick It All Together! (you Are Nearly Finished!)

-This is common sense...


Step 8: Well Done!

You have finished the Finger Snowboard!

my mate made one in dt at school he got acrylic and cut it to the shape of a tech deck, then he heated the sides up and bent them, after that he bent some metal and glue gunned them on. it works really well

You bend strips of paper on the bindings with sellotape as shown in a picture in the binding making step. Anyway good job! You just need to make another one to get everything perfect lol.

author
Xander da gr8 (author)julesv2008-07-02

I can't get the paper to bend properly. All I can do is put it in a circle which looks worse than it does right now >:|

Xander da gr8 (author)julesv2008-07-02
