Introduction: Skateboard Rack
My son has couple of skateboard lying around and one long board that I made (you can see my intractable here: https://www.instructables.com/id/Longboard-From-Scrap-Wood/). This situation is becoming dangerous because he is leaving them every ware. So I needed to make something to organize them and keep them away so nobody will step on them. I saw some ideas on internet and decided to make my one.
- Wood planks
- Wood glues
- Philips screws
- Orbit sander
- Table saw
- Sending paper
- Drill press
- Carpenter angle gauge

So after selecting my wood planks I decided to go with slots for six skateboards final dimensions are 17cm x 83 cm
I used carpenter angle gauge to copy the same angle for all slots. Slots are 2cm wide. I marked one line 4 cm of the edge that is my guide was the slots ends. As you can see from the markings I made mistake when marking the slots.
After I marked all the slots I used a drill press with 20 mm drill. The center of the hole is on the line and end of the circle on the lines marked. I used tape to hold the planks together so that slots are symmetrical. With wood file I roughly smoothed the inner ages of the slots.
I used my table saw so to make slots for vertical wood plank that will keep them together
Using a round rooter bit I made smut edges. My rooter bits are not so sharp as you can see from the burn marks but it is no problem they disappear with sanding
After everything was sanded it is time to assemble the shelf and test.
I did not like the last slot so I decided to cut it and left with six slots
Final step: protecting the wood.
I added two hooks for hanging a backpack and helmet.
