how to make a cheap skateboard? Answered


wheels from a funiture dolly. peice of wood (dosn't splinter) with ends curved up. . . . .BAM!!! instant skateboard. paint it if you want.

From my experience its cheaper and safer to buy a used one.

Find someone throwing out a pair of roller skates. Detach from the shoe/boot upper part. Screw it on the bottom of a piece of scrap wood. Go crazy. That's how we did it in our day. Good luck.

Agreed...Skate wheels are tricky to ride on though. Probably could buy a skateboard cheap enough to negate making one.

Castors, From Sofas or other Furniture

And Wood

And Power Tools
