I helped a little, but my now 11 yr old son made these.
The deck on the first is Baltic plywood that he cut out on the bandsaw to make a fat cruiser style board. He designed the veneer arrangement for the top and sanded the edges. I glued things up, drilled holes and helped paint and sticker the bottom.Then 80 grit sandpaper as grip tape designed to still show the veneer…..and trashed already by his feet.
The second is a store bought board- we cut out the Maple Leaf design in the grip tape to show the top of the deck.
He did all the truck, bearing and wheels assembly on both.
The crazy thing is they make these beautiful boards and then slap the ugly grip tape on them..gheeze
