Have you ever wanted to build your own skateboard deck from scratch? This course will teach you how to do just that using innovative techniques created by the Roarockit Skateboard Company in Maui, Hawaii. You too can build a deck as well as the pro?s do! You'll learn how to laminate 7 layers of Canadian hard maple veneer into a street cruiser by using a one-sided foam mould and atmospheric pressure to press the veneers into a modern street deck shape. Your deck will then become one of-a-kind as you design your own graphics and learn to apply them using stencils and paint. In addition to having a custom deck, you'll learn about wood veneers used for the manufacture of skateboards, simple mould making techniques, atmospheric pressure, basic use of hand woodworking tools like rasps and sandpaper, designing graphics, template making, and deck finishing. No previous woodworking experience is required.
Please note that wheels and trucks are not included in your kit or kit cost.
