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.
