How to make a longboard

By February 12, 2014 building, design, diy, projects, video 6 Comments

Earlier this year, I was able to go to the Mini Maker Faire in Atlanta. There were lots of cool things there, but one thing that really stuck out to me was a guy who made longboard skateboards out of vintage wooden water skis. They were gorgeous..

I immediately had the idea to do something similar, but use reclaimed hardwood flooring boards. ¬†Well, after much searching, I wasn’t able to find the type of flooring that I really wanted, so I abandoned that part of the idea, and decided to use some random hardwood boards that I recently got ahold of.

I’m not really a skateboarder, and have only ridden a longboard once or twice, but now that I’ve done this project, I plan on riding it quite a bit. It’s a lot of fun, and rides really smoothly.

If you want to check out the guy who inspired this project, go see his Etsy store, and check him out on Facebook!!
