My daughter and I were watching Youtube one day when we stumbled across a video of a girl on her longboard. She was freestyle dancing on it while riding. ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-EojKRbcEE ) My daughter was immediately interested. She asked me if she could have a longboard of her own. I then got the idea that I could make her one. I couldn’t find a longboard template.As i was looking for some ideas, I came across Ken90712 (http://lumberjocks.com/Ken90712) who helped me out a lot. It took me a while because I kept getting sidetracked on other projects. For the finish I used General Finishes High performance water based top coat semi-gloss. When I finally got it done, I took my daughter down to South Bay skate and had a clear grip tape put on for $15. If you have noticed, my longboard design is similar to my cutting board designs. In all, my daughter really likes her new longboard.

This is so awesome that you got this done for your little girl. Love the shape, I’ll bet it rides really well. I had mine out out this morning. The the board design and colors are great. What trucks trucks and wheels you get? I’ve started using shark wheels ther a trip. They have a sale right now.

Great job bud.
