Magnetic Skateboard Wall Holder

Introduction: Magnetic Skateboard Wall Holder

About: Too much wood, too little time.

After seeing Genghis72's Instructable I had to make my own really. The only problem was, my skateboards were much much heavier.


Materials

  • Lots of screws (4x skateboard)
  • Anchors (3x skateboard)
  • A skateboard (1x skateboard)
  • Sandpaper ( up to 1000 grit)
  • Spray paint
  • 4 in PVC pipe

Step 1: Magnetic Wall Holders

I really liked genghis72's Magnetic Holders which he designed himself and after printing them I decided there was no reason to reinvent the wheel.

Finishing the Holder

  • Sand the parts down to a 1000 grit finish to get that sexy smooth polished look and then add in the magnets with epoxy or how you see fit.

Step 2: Line 'Em Up

Top Holder

  • Set the holders to whatever height you desire and screw them in using anchors. I placed all four of mine on studs to maximize strength.

Bottom Holder

  • Next grab a 4 inch PVC pipe and cut it every 3 inches.
  • Cut out a fourth of the circumference
  • With a heat gun bend one of the edges inward

Step 3: Bend Again

Using a heat gun and splint of wood bend back the lip so that you have a Lima bean looking shape

Repeat until all are bent in position.

Step 4: Screw It In

Spray paint a color that is not gold because I truly regret that decision and screw into the wall.


Tada, finished. Add and remove skateboards as pleased.

    Hello,

    Do you still have the file for 3D printing the holder? I would like to make it but there is no File to be found.

    Thank you.

    I would have to look for it. I'll try to find it but no promises, it's been quite a while since I printed these out

    Hi there.

    Would you have any interest in (and availability to) make another one of these wall mount systems? These are quite impressive. If so, what would you charge?

    Thank you,
    Jack

    Hi Mannonj, I apologise for not seeing this. I probably wouldn't be able to remake these because I am not on good terms with my schools printing facilities. There are alternatives you could try with pvc.
