Made a skateboard

I made my godson a skateboard for his birthday present.

This was a fun project. I've never done this before.

I ordered the maple veneers in a board pack, and bought a vacuum bag, both from Roarockit. I resawed my own walnut veneers.

Thanks for looking!

Very nice! I'm sure he loves it, too. How does it compare to factory made units in weight and strength?

Thanks! He's very excited for me to drop it off on Saturday.

It should be reasonably close to a factory unit. I used the industry standard 7 x 1/16" layer construction, with two cross grain plies. I used TB 3, but I'm sure manufacturers use epoxy.

Nice work, like the checker board detail.

They may be using RF cure Titebond II for an immediate gluing job. My friend with the cabinet shop where I get my Maple and Cherry scraps has a large RF unit for gluing cabinet door frames, panels, etc. It is an immediate and fully cured bond in seconds. Some of the scrap pieces I've gotten from him were two pieces glued together and just for grins I tried to break one joint apart - ain't happening! And the good thing for him is that he can use regular TBII, no expensive glues required. So I wouldn't be surprised if manufacturers used something similar for high production and QC.
