WKS441: Make a Skateboard Deck

We are very excited to present our latest workshop at TechShop San Francisco: the Build Your Own Skateboard Deck workshop!

In this two-day workshop, participants will design and shape their very own skateboard decks. During the first day, students will cut their veneer into 12" strips, then glue and clamp them over a form, determining how much concave the board has and what angle the tail of the board is. On the second day, we will pull our skateboard blanks off the forms, transfer our profile designs, then cut the shape out and round the corners of the board. Participants will walk away with a custom skateboard deck, ready to paint or laser designs onto or just bolt on hardware and ride that same day.

    Day 1: Day 1, 3 hours
    Day 2:, 4 hours



    Prerequisite: You must pass the Woodshop SBU before taking this class.
