Today I will help you to make your own skateboard at home. I believe if you have the necessary tools then you should be able to create a homemade skateboard easily.
Besides, it is way more fun and excitement to have something made by you. You can also design your own artwork style that no one can have the same as yours.
In this guide, I will show you two common shapes that skateboards have: The plat concave and W-concave shapes.
So without further ado, let’s get started!
1. The tools and materials
First of all, let’s prepare some tools and materials beforehand, you will need:
a. Table saw – very helpful to cut long, wooden plank. It is also easy to cut long curves and different shapes.
b. Band saw – it can cut small, curves intricately. It is super great to make balanced and symmetrical boards.
c. Sanders (handheld, paper or benchtop belt sanders) – these sanders help to smooth out the edges and give you the amazing feeling. It also eliminates wood chips that might hurt you.
d. Drills (handheld or tabletop drill) – this is used for creating truck holes on your skateboard. As we will buy the trucks and wheels separately, then we attached them on our skateboard once finished.
