Below, the first link named "How a deck is made" contains articles and videos on how a skateboard deck is professionally made by skateboard deck manufaturers.
I recommend you watch the videos and read that article first if your unfamiliar with how a skateboard deck is made from start to finish.
The other links cover how you can make the skateboard deck. From what kind of veneer and glue is used, to how you can make a wood or concrete mold and press for the production of skateboards decks.
How to make a silk screen press, for screening skateboard decks from nose to tail and how to make the skateboard press out of steel and a bottle jack are the most recent of the free plans located below.
Articles on how to shape, drill and apply the graphics will be here soon.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy your visit and learn something while your here, good luck.
To all my DIYskate.com supporters and fans... thank you all so very much for all the kind emails, great pictures and praise you've sent my way over the years. Thanks to everyone who has donated as well. It's been an amazing journey for the last 9 years, and I really can't thank you guys enough. But as all things eventually do, my time as the owner and editor of DIYskate.com has come to an end. I'll always have been the founder and creator, but soon the site will change ownership.
Rest assured, the new owner is also from the skateboarding community and gives me his word that the concept and ideology of DIYskate.com will continue on long after I've left. There will be some changes I'm sure, but from what I understand, they will all be for the better and the updates will be much more frequent.
So once again, thank you guys, each and every one, for your support over the years. I'll miss you all - Jason
