The story of a skateboard!
Yesterday, I started making board No. 30 for Lauren. She asked me to send her photo updates from time to time on the board’s progress. So, I thought it might be nice to share the photos here, for everyone to see. My goal is to take at least one photo for every stage the board is in. I did already miss the very first step of drawing the template out…but, I’ll do my best to not miss anymore.
Photo #1:: All 7 layers of the 1/16” maple veneer just before they get glued up. You can see where I marked the center line, tail line and truck holes, then the board shape itself, all drawn on the top layer of the soon to be maple-glue sandwich.
(Time travel to the future to see this board complete)
