Step 1: Materials
The first step is to gather materials:
wood glue, or gorilla glue wood work great!
wheels and trucks (can be bought on ebay for around $20)
drill and bits
chalk line (optional)
stain, or paint
Step 2: Cut Wood
in this step, cut the wood into 1"x4" rectangles, you will need three of these to make your longboard, be sure to cut along and across the grain. you will see why later on.
Step 3: Glue it all Together
in this step, you will glue it all together. Use wood glue or gorilla glue to do this, first lay one piece of plywood down, making sure it is the piece is the one with the grain going along the long part of the wood, lay glue down and spread evenly. Do this to the second sheet(the one with the grain going parallel to the short side of the piece) and lay them on top of each other so glue on both sides are touching. Do this to the third piece and then clamp and add weights. You want to compress it enough so that glue will squeeze out the sides use weights or whatever you have on hand. Let dry overnight. notice how i bent my long board. you have to do this while the glue is wet, and this is why this is the best way to make long boards, because you can adjust the curve and shape it the way you want, which you cant do with a normal piece of wood alone.
