My pleasure turned to great joy when my son was fascinated by the skateboard deck and it became his birthday present. His request for artwork was the logo of the company he works for, and nothing else. The addition of “the wolf” would be the only other design on the board.
As we discussed the design it crossed my mind that a second board could make its way to BC with my son, who could then facilitate the silent auction process with his co-workers. He agreed and the vision of a second board started to take place.
Last Saturday, I attended the Grand Opening of the Roarockit Skateboard Deck School and planned on purchasing the kit I needed. What a surprise I got, when Ted and Norah said that they were donating it towards the cause! The gift of giving is already growing beyond expectations! Thank you, Ted and Norah, for the unexpected and wonderful donation.
Monday, I glued the veneer together and let it sit over night in the vacuum bag.
Yesterday, I sanded it
Today, I used my woodburning tools to add my wolf logo ….
... and some foot prints on the underside of the deck.
Next step: primary layer of finish
