DIY - Do It Yourself!
Welcome to DIYskate.com. My name is Jason and this is my contribution to the skateboarding community. There's over fifty pages of free plans which I have designed and engineered to hopefully be the most accurate, cost effective and enjoyable ramp plans and how to make a skateboard plans on the internet.
They're all free and can be found by following the navigation column on the left.
The DIY Skateboard link will take you to a page with articles on how to make your own skateboard. With pages like, how to make a wood skateboard mold and a concrete skateboard mold (spoiler alert, the wood mold isn't worth it in my opinion, stick with the concrete mold). And how to make the press and even where to get the veneer and glue to make your own skateboard deck. Try it, there's nothing like the satisfaction of you and your buddies skating decks you've made yourself. And who knows, maybe you'll end up starting your own skateboard company... There's already a couple skateboarding companies out there that have started from the plans on this very site.
Yep, still winter. At least here in Chicago, Illinois. If you live elsewhere and are able to skate right now... you suck. Alright, not really, but I am jealous. Since I can't skate right now, my winter project is my car. It's old and needs a lot of rust repaired. So I'm usually in my garage in the sub freezing temperatures, making a lot of noise and annoying the neighbors. You can follow along if you'd like, I've been documenting the progress on Instagram for the last few months now - Instagram page: motors.jpg
For those of you who have found an indoor spot or it is warm enough to get some skating in, take advantage of these free plans and build yourself a ledge or a rail. There's no catch, you don't have to sign up for anything or download anything. This is just straight forward, how to make skateboards and ramps if you've got the time and the tools.
I hope you find this page helpful and if you've got a suggestion, question or just want to say hi, feel free to contact me. I read them all, although I'm not the greatest at responding to them all. So if it's a legitimate question that hasn't been answered here already, go ahead, bug me.
And just for the record, bowled corners, pyramids, bumps to rails, larger half and quarter pipe plans have all been suggested or I've worked on some version of them and they just have never made it to the site yet... Honestly they take a lot of work and I guess I got burnt out on it a while back and haven't found the time or the spark to get back to it.
Also, please donate if you get a chance. Even 50 cents helps as I pay for hosting and fees out of my own pocket for this site, and it ain't cheap. So if you feel like it's helped you at all, give what you can, it's going to a good cause.
