    Looks incredible! Nice job, kudos on the effort and overall win.
    What was the method of make? Laminating? Carving? I'm planning on making a longboard so I'm looking at different methods; what was yours?

    Thanks man. it was a fun project and i'm proud of the outcome.
    I laminated, it has concave but no kick tail. the whole thing is made from scraps i collected while working at a saw mill. some might call it going green, i call it poor bot Ingenuity. so i guess it wasn't a usual method, more like making a skate out of a jigsaw puzzle. i glued thin scraps into panels then planed and sanded them as flat and thin as i could. i had the advantage of access to a fully loaded commercial wood shop. there's four layers just under 1/8". i made my press out of wood covered with wax so the board cant stick to the press. rub skate wax on it and set it in the sun till the wax melts and soaks in i did like three coats. i used C-clamps to provide pressure.

    Nice way for a longboarder to blow spare time...... build customs! or not just specifically longboarders;]

    how do you get the concave in the longboard?

    Nice, I'm planning on sourcing some baltic birch and making a longboard of my own, hopefully it'll turn out ok!

    Hello,i am also into longboards and that kinds of stuff,i have also made a homemade longboard out of a plain skateboard deck and some tracker trucks and some wheels, i have picture and video of it,it is a lowrider,in the pictures and videos it is version 1 and 3, v2 is missing because it didnt do anything. please give back responce,thankyou.


    Pretty awesome short-boards!

    how did u do the cut outs? just the same lengths and cut out with a saw? im trying to do this at the moment

     Hey knex, what does this ride like?  I've got a deck sitting around and I was thinking of doing something with it.  I like the cut out.  Very interested.  Thanks!

    That's called a Shlongboard.
    Very fun to ride indeed.
