Introduction: Paper Fingerboard

in this instructable i will show you how to make an awesome tech with stuff lying around your house.

this is my first instructable so go easy on me!!

Step 1: Materials

thing you will need:
1.) Manila paper
2.) 4 clamps
3.) scissors
4.) gluestick
5.) black sand paper(or regular spraypainted black)
6.) two tech decks(at least one with no trucks or wheels)
7.) pencil
8.) internet(for graphics)

Step 2: Trace and Cut

first trace six tech deck shapes and cut them out you can also trim them if you want.

Step 3: Glue

in this step all you have to do is glue all six tech deck shapes together to make it thick

Step 4: Clamp

now before the glue dries from step 3 clamp the board in between the two tech decks and postion the clamps to get most of the curves like a normal tech deck.

Step 5: Griptape

glue the griptape to the dech and trim it to the shape that you want to have. you could even cut the line in it like i did but i dont know what its called.

Step 6: Graphics

this step is optional but you could glue graphics on the bottom and cover it with a sheet of laminate(that clear stuf that use to cover paper)that is cut to the size of your tech deck

Step 7: Final Product

and this is the finished product wich looks really pro.

    I've made my own, but I used my own techniques. It looks much stronger and looks like it has better shape. I glued the manila paper in layers of 4-5 made my own template using a compass and ruler. Then when the paper is drying I shape/form it with my finger to get the concave surface. And I cut it out and draw decals.

    You didn't use a tech deck tool. Did you? How did you make the holes without actually using a tool?
