The Handmade Skateboard: design and build a board from scratch


What a cool looking book! Thanks for the heads up and the excellent gift idea…Looks like I’ll be building a few skateboards for the holidays. My nephews and nieces will love them. (And, I’ll be building one for myself…)

Here is a stereo picture of Mark showing off a longboard at Maker Faire a couple of years ago:


If you wish to make a long board from scratch, you must first invent the universe.


made a board in 8th grade wood shop. Thank you Mr Woods! (no kidding!)

I went to amazon and looked in the book his use of super long mounting hardware should be a criminal offence. If you could build a decent skateboard deck without investing in a proper press everyone would do it but they probably still wouldn’t need this book.
