Introduction: Longboard/Skateboard Rack
Runner Up in the
Hand Tools Only Contest 2017
I want to get into making longboards, so I had some cut outs made onto some ply wood (instructable coming soon) and I decided before I make these longboards let me make something to hold them so I decided to make this rack.
I didn't take any measurements I just eyeballed it to see if they were the same.
Step 1: What I Used
- a drill and a wood bit size 22"
- speed square
I started by drilling holes where the boards will go with the depth that I wanted.
Then I used the speed square to make a perfect line from the hole the end of the plywood.
Next I got the speed square and clamps and used them as director for the jigsaw by clamping the square down where I needed it.
Once I had the lines cut out I used some screws cant remember what size they were but I put the two pieces next to each other and screwed them together. Once they were together I got the speed square and made a slight angle and used the jigsaw to cut it (sorry don't have picture for it).
Then I got a square piece of plywood and and put it at the bottom and did my best to get the screws perfectly inline with the rack (this picture is not the wood I used because I don't not have the holes lined up properly).
Step 7: Finished Product
I did not use a stain or garnish because I like the way plan wood looks I've don't that with a few of my wood working products for my room.
P.S. This is my first instructable to write, I'm hoping to get better
