Custom Skateboard/Nickle Board

make your own custom cruisor or skateboard bare with me its my first instructable and I'm 17

Step 1: Items Needed

skateboard tool
wood burner

Step 2: Prepare Board

ok so first step is to sand the bottom of the board until you get to bare wood after that draw your board design on your board

Step 3: Start Cutting

using your hack saw (would reccomend keyhole saw) begin to cut out around your traced design

Step 4: Finish Cutting Then Use Design for the Actual Skateboard Bottom

lay out design on board and tape down after you have added either graphite or transfer paper to the back then trace over the design

Step 5: Once Traced Begin Burning Design Into Wood

using wood burner carefully burn design into wood this is the longest part of the whole process

Step 6: Apply Sparurathane or Any Other Marien Grade Wood Sealer

apply as many coats as specified on can I put 7 layers on mine

Step 7: Put It All Together

assemble all the pieces together and enjoy. altogether it took me a total of a month and a half to make mine
