My son has never shown much intrest in my work, it has always seemed boring to him. What I am hoping is that he will see that he can make whatever he wants. He’s a teenager now so I will have to wait and see if by combining his skateboarding and woodworking will get him interested.

I carved the deck out of Mango and then layed two layers of fiberglass to reinforce it.

I like it very much. As a matter of fact I would think that would be a big ticket ($$$) item to aging skateboarders who went out and got a real job.

That is a very interesting skateboard. I don’t know much about them but I would think they’s call it “Knarley” Excellent work. What does it say on the bottom?

If he takes that board outside, I’d ground him!

I’ve got to say, that if you let him use this on the concrete, I ought to come slap you. This is truly a sculptural piece of functional-art. I really admire this work.

It deserves to be on a pedestal in a gallery, or made into trophies for the X Games. Just great work.

Looks great but I would be a little concerned with the points on the front of the board.

Wow! It’s going to confuse the heck out of archaeologists in the future! What an awesome deck!

I thought for sure they said “You better not tear this up, or I will choke you”

This is gorgeous. It sure beats the skateboard I used when I was his age (we only had 2×4 boards then). I cringe at the thought of this board being used for anything but show.

Thanks for the post.
