About: I'm a Texan living in South Africa as a missionary with my family working along side Samaria Mission

I want to get into making longboards, so I had some cut outs made onto some ply wood (instructable coming soon) and I decided before I make these longboards let me make something to hold them so I decided to make this rack.

I didn't take any measurements I just eyeballed it to see if they were the same.

Step 1: What I Used

  • a drill and a wood bit size 22"
  • jigsaw
  • speed square
  • clamps

Step 2:

I started by drilling holes where the boards will go with the depth that I wanted.

Step 3:

Then I used the speed square to make a perfect line from the hole the end of the plywood.

Step 4:

Next I got the speed square and clamps and used them as director for the jigsaw by clamping the square down where I needed it.

Step 5:

Once I had the lines cut out I used some screws cant remember what size they were but I put the two pieces next to each other and screwed them together. Once they were together I got the speed square and made a slight angle and used the jigsaw to cut it (sorry don't have picture for it).

Step 6:

Then I got a square piece of plywood and and put it at the bottom and did my best to get the screws perfectly inline with the rack (this picture is not the wood I used because I don't not have the holes lined up properly).

Step 7: Finished Product

I did not use a stain or garnish because I like the way plan wood looks I've don't that with a few of my wood working products for my room.

P.S. This is my first instructable to write, I'm hoping to get better

    For further improvement you could cut the slots at an angel to give a glimpse at the back of the decks. Especially when you build your own longboard and have a custom board that would be nice :)

    I need one of these. My kids just leave their boards in the middle of the room.

    That's a great simple setup! We could use something like this for my nephews' boards :)
