LongboardMay 4, 2013
Check out my first woodworking project
The Building Process:
I took this class during my senior year at University of Oregon's Craft Center. It was a great introduction to this hobby and merged with an existing pastime of mine - longboarding.
In the beginning, I didn't take too many photos because there was nothing too exciting about cutting a few strips of wood and gluing them together. One major lesson learned, is that wood prices can vary dramatically between different types. For whatever reason, I really wanted to use mahogany because I liked the idea of working with mahogany. But I realized at the end how expensive it actually is. I remember the longboard being $27 bucks, which was pretty steep on a college budget...
I pulled the trucks and wheels from my existing longboard.
