Introduction: Making a Wooden Cruiser Board With Ice Cream Deck Art

Picture of Making a Wooden Cruiser Board With Ice Cream Deck Art

Building a skateboard isn't really that hard. In general, a skateboard
consists of three parts: the deck, the trucks and the wheels. In the video shown here, I will show you how to make the deck for a cruiser board (with no kicktail). These boards are generally used to travel small distances from point A to B.

here is the link to my video:

Step 1: The Parts

I got the trucks and wheels from an old skateboard, but I will probably replace them if I'm going to ride the board more often. For the deck I used some plywood with an oak veneer.

Step 2: The Build

The build is very straight-forward. You just measure, saw and sand like
any other woodworking project. Watch the video to see the steps in detail.

Step 3: Deck Art

The creative part begins when making the deck art. You can see the
skateboard as a piece of canvas and you can paint whatever you like. I went for this ice cream design, because it works well with the shape of my board.

Step 4: Griptape

After painting, you need to add the griptape. I cut out a rectangle in
the tape and put it on my board. I painted the exposed wood green and also added my initials.

Step 5: Asembly

The only thing left to do was to add the trucks and wheels and my custom Ice Cream Cruiser Board was finished. Now go ahead and make your own!
