In this instructable i will show you all the steps i took in making my super cheap skateboard!. My board worked out to be about $2.50 but my goal was to make it as cheap as possible. With a few extra bucks and tools you can turn this into something very custom, in a relatively short amount of time!
This style of board is more or less based on the old way skaters used to make skateboards when companies stopped making them because they were deemed "dangerous".
material (i used):
piece of wood
Disclaimer: if you injure yourself with whatever creation you make using this instructable as your guide it is not my fault in anyway or form, its sad i even have to put this in but you get hurt skateboarding, it just happens.
Step 1: Roller skates!
Do you like roller skating? Neither do I! I got my roller skates at goodwill for four bucks. All you want from these are the wheels and the screw if you don't have any layin around. If your a metal head like me the leather is nice for arm bands!
Note that these are roller skate not roller blades, HUGE difference, roller skates have trucks and flatter wheels which are basically mandatory on a skateboard.
Step 2: Cut some metal!
This is where the hacksaw (or whatever other device you wanna use) comes into play. Pick a nice looking spot and cut the bridge between the trucks.
