So one of my electives in woodworkin...
4th quarter comes you have a whatever you want to make project...
Obviously what else is there to make?
But a skateboard!!!!

yea im going to try it...
and post the end results here (although it might be a failure :()
how sick would it be to make your own boards though?
and you dont have to pay for the wood at school
as for the graphic ill make it say Hoodlum or something but im not the best painter or anything...
my main focus is just making it skatable so good luck to me lol

But its not till 4th quarter so... just gotta wait
in the mean time im yahoogletubing how to make a board haha

either way look out for it! :P

Wood shop normally doesnt have glue or a press or very thin wood.


my tips: cut out a normally sized piece with the jigsaw in the shape of a fish almost. Like an old school noard just a cruiser. Bring trucks into class to make sure theyll fit. drill holes accordingly to size and shape

I wouldn't try to make a skateboard with concave and stuff.

Go for a longboard, you can make a good looking product without concave and what not. Plus, you can be really creative with the initial shape and everything. The hardest thing to do is get the trucks centered, so try to make the shape of the board easy to pinpoint the center. With Longboards you can stain them and stuff as well, which I'm sure he'll be looking for during his grading.

Check out http://www.longboardlarry.net for some ideas, he makes homemade longboards and has a TON of shapes and stuff.

Well, with my school, (it's a really small school) our options from 6th grade to 12th grade are: stained glass, Spanish, and band so Kush is lucky he has woodwork.
