Make Shift skateboard / rollerskates / cart

Quite a cool and easy make and fun to ride (short distances anyway). It is stable enough to ride on (look at the pics)

sorry for the quality of the pics

REMEMBER it doesnt have to be a skateboard

My first instructable ever and for the Office Supplies Challenge.

Step 1: Parts and tools

Picture of Parts and tools

Parts
1) 2 pieces of cardboard (Shoulder-width long and foot-width wide for the skateboard, the same size as your footfor the rollerskates and however large you want the base to be for the cart. you might need more later
2) As many wheels as you have (or stolen from other people) from those (old or new) wheely office chairs(that spin). (I only had 3)

Tools
Pen (Measuring/Marking out)
Scissors/Knife (Stronger the better)
Tape (use the strongest you have/can find/can steal)

Step 2: Board

Put the pieces of board together and tape together SECURELY.

Then pierce however many holes you need (1 per wheel used) through both pieces of cardboard.

I fail to see how this would work. Cardboard? Really?

A long time ago I mounted 8 free spinning chair casters on a small piece of plywood. It was pretty deadly.
how small was this piece of plywood
 A little larger then the average skateboard.

Hey, good idea! I'm gonna have to try this next time I run across some random wheels. I have a question about how it rode: how was the turning? good/okay/don't point it at anything you don't want to hit?

I would never get on it. Cardboard is not a good material to make a skateboard out of.

Well i you cant get much stronger stuff in an office remember this is for the office supplies challenge

Of course you can. You take a hammer to a desk, rip off a piece of wood, you take some screws from it, and screw some wheels from a chair on to the bottom of the wood. And Bumpus, posterboard is even worse. Barely any stronger than printer paper.
i think what bumpus might mean is the poster board like that used in elementary school science fairs and such.
Still, barely any better.

Look at the new pics now. Just one more piece of card board and I can skate on the board. Rollerskates made like this would be more stable even if you are not.
maybe not cardboard but poster board is good

Sorry, but ive taken it apart for another instructables. but the proof is in the pictures

Just duct tape a few more pieces of cardboard together, that should add some strength to it.

I've always wanted to make a hippe board. Just a board with wheels would be fun.
