Introduction: Building a One of a Kind Skateboard
I love to build paddle boards and surfboards using wood strips. I had some small scraps leftover so i decided to try and make a Strip build skate boards.
Step 1: Gather Material
so this is done with scrap wood from old projects
Material and tool list
Clamps lots of clamps
Long threaded rod or bolts
Paint and stain tape
Strips around 24 inches long
Step 2: Gather the Strips
Set wood up putting smaller strips of wood in between to shape it like a penny board
Add glue to the tips and tail of the wood and clamp add screws and clamps to the nose and tail
Drill a hole through the front of the board and put the threaded rod thur and add washer and nuts and tighten.
Leave over night to allow the glue to dry
Glue and clamp the pieces together.
Step 3: Route Out the Strips for Strength.
set the router to 1/4 inch use a 1/4 inch bit and rout out 3 strips the opposite direction of the wood to add strength. Add glue and clamp in a piece of the 1/4 by 1/4 inch wood.
Step 4: Shape the Board
use the scroll or band saw to cut the shape of the penny board
Put thru the planer to flatten the board. my board was kinda crooked from the clamps. The planer fixed any imperfection.
Sand out the nose and tail to the desirable shape

That looks excellent, but I think some resin could make it stronger
