Intro: Make Shift Skateboard / Rollerskates / Cart

Quite a cool and easy make and fun to ride (short distances anyway). It is stable enough to ride on (look at the pics)

sorry for the quality of the pics

REMEMBER it doesnt have to be a skateboard

My first instructable ever and for the Office Supplies Challenge.

Step 1: Parts and Tools

Parts
1) 2 pieces of cardboard (Shoulder-width long and foot-width wide for the skateboard, the same size as your footfor the rollerskates and however large you want the base to be for the cart. you might need more later
2) As many wheels as you have (or stolen from other people) from those (old or new) wheely office chairs(that spin). (I only had 3)

Tools
Pen (Measuring/Marking out)
Scissors/Knife (Stronger the better)
Tape (use the strongest you have/can find/can steal)

Step 2: Board

Put the pieces of board together and tape together SECURELY.

Then pierce however many holes you need (1 per wheel used) through both pieces of cardboard.

Step 3: Attach Wheels

Push the screw of each wheel into each hole and tape in securely on bothe sides of the wheel. (mine in on the guard around the wheel)

Step 4: Be Amazed

It is actually pretty good.
Tape some more card to the board to make it strong enough to stand on,
add tape all over or add stickers or draw on it,
add some robitics and drive it,
the possibilities are endless.

Remember it doesn't have to be a skateboard.

    I fail to see how this would work. Cardboard? Really?

    A long time ago I mounted 8 free spinning chair casters on a small piece of plywood. It was pretty deadly.

    Hey, good idea! I'm gonna have to try this next time I run across some random wheels. I have a question about how it rode: how was the turning? good/okay/don't point it at anything you don't want to hit?

    Of course you can. You take a hammer to a desk, rip off a piece of wood, you take some screws from it, and screw some wheels from a chair on to the bottom of the wood. And Bumpus, posterboard is even worse. Barely any stronger than printer paper.

    Look at the new pics now. Just one more piece of card board and I can skate on the board. Rollerskates made like this would be more stable even if you are not.
