2 1/2 years ago I posted some images of a few skateboards that I thought in a few more months, I would have a product line I could bring to the market place. Well, I might not be realistic when it comes to time, but I am persistent.

Good looking boards. I wish I’d had a board like this way back when I got my first skateboard. It was a long board with indoor clay wheels. The plastic wheels hadn’t been invented yet. The year was 1964 or 1965 and I had to order my skateboard from an ad in a magazine. No stores in East Tennessee sold skateboards then. I was the first kid in town that had a skateboard that didn’t have steel wheels. The clay wheels kept me from killing myself. On a steep hill they would break up before you got fast enough to kill yourself. Once I wiped out 1/2 way down a huge East Tennessee hill and I looked like a Polish sausage that was scraped on a cheese grater. I must have worried my Mother to death back then.

Good choice of wood. What does it cost to produce a single board?

These came out really nice! I’ve made a few for friends and sold a few but they weren’t quite as nice as these! the hardest part was trying to make a press, so I would get like 8 ready at a time and use my friend’s dad’s 5’ x 9’ vacuum press. they are fun to build and yours look great!

These are great! I have made some as well out of hard wood not Bamaboo. I have been looking for a pattern or dimensions on your first board. At first I didnt like that style but it grown on me alot. Any help would be appreciated. Thx Ken
