Step 1: Get The Shape

Trace out a small skateboard shape onto some thim wood( the thinner the better). You can also trim down thicker wood and use it instead. Now cut out the board using a scroll saw.

Step 2: Add Some "Wheels"

Cut two pices of doweling to the length of the board. Glue them on and leaving them in a vice for 20 minutes or so

Step 3: Add Some Grip

Trace your board onto a piece of dark sandpaper then cut it out and glue it on top. You can also use Hockey tape

Step 4: Curve The Edges

This is an optional step that only works if you have a thick board. Sand up the bottom edges so that they look more skateboard-like.

Step 5: You're Done

Now your finished and you can use your board. Use them as you would any normal fingerboard( Such as the truly awsome ones made by Themanmatt13).

Those are very nice. I can actually use them under my hands or fingers when I am sliding along with a power tool or tig torch along a board or work while needing to slide my hand without friction.

Just hope you get some work soon so you don't have to finger board all day. Be careful and don't skin a knuckle by falling off.
