In this video I combine two of my hobbies—skateboarding and woodworking. Whereas traditional skateboards stack layers of veneer one on top of another (akin to plywood), this longboard is made with a vertical lamination construction, which means its essentially a giant cutting board with wheels. I used maple and cherry in its construction. To be honest, it is not a board I ride very much because of its one-dimensional shape, but it was a fun project to build.
I filmed the build last year and finally got around to editing the footage after Mauricio had asked about the project. There’s a special guest at the end, too!
I apologize but apparently it won’t allow me to embed the code from Vimeo so here’s a link to the video:
