Introduction: Skateboard Shelf

Hi all

In this instructable I will show you how to make a simple yet eye catching skateboard book shelf.
I made my skateboard shelf because I did not see one in any stores and so decided to make one myself.
I did notice that someone allready posted how to make a skateboard bookshelf and though I would add my shelf to the instructable for anyone interested.
Hope you enjoy

Step 1: Tools + Materials

Tools:
screw driver
drill
drill bits

Materials:
skateboard (any skateboard will do used or new)
ikea shelf arms
screws

Step 2: Screw the Board to the Shelf Arm

Simply use a small screw to screw the board to the shelf arm.
Tips:
+I used a screw smaller than the hole on the board to avoid damage in case I wanted to use to board for skateboarding later.
+I did not drill holes in the shelf arm just used force to screw in the screw
+I used the further hole from which the wall would be facing, I only used one screw to screw in each arm.

Step 3: Attaching the Shelf to the Wall

I found that this step is the hardest and took me the most amount of time.
I used the shelf along with a level to mark the where the holes will be.
After that I drilled the holes with my drill
And lastly attached the shelf to the wall using screws

*I did a bad job the first time and dident drill the holes in the right place try to avoid this :)

Finished!!!
