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

Step 1: The Parts You Will Need...

Picture of 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...

Picture of 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.


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

Xander da gr8 (author)2008-07-02

That's fun to make!! My didn't turn out very cool looking but it is still fun to play with. How did you get the bindings into a foot shape?

julesv (author)Xander da gr82008-07-02

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.

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

oh... whoops

Xander da gr8 (author)2008-07-02

Why did you make it a collaboration if you were the only one to make it?????
