a few days ago my uncle gave me his old skatbord from when he was a teenager.
it was very worn and covered in flaky paint and bleacked stickers.
so i decided to change the underneath with my own design.
heres how i got on
(ps. this is my first instructable)

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: You Will Need
you will need
a belt sander
spray paint (more even coat)
and some more things i cant remember what it was
Step 2: Sanding
first i revoved the wheele assembely completely and sanded the bord until just the grip was left
Step 3: The Diesgn and Priming
seen as my design was simple i only needed masking tape as a stencil
so thats what i used and only left 2 strips of bare wood
sorry in the pic a had already painted it with primer
Step 4: Paint
next i added xtra tape on the bits that were still bare
then i gave it 2 coats of spray paint
sanding inbeetween coats
Step 5: Remove Tape and Finnish
after i sprayed 3 coats of black paint and let it dry i CARFULLY! removed the tape.
Step 6: Finnish
then i added 4 coats of varnish (which took me 6 days [due to inferior varnish])
and put the wheeles back on.
