- Detailed step-by-step instruction
didn't know i'd be so interested in the history, but it's v well done. i've built two boards from this was able to successfully bend wood for the first time. info on bending alone makes it worth it.
Great woodworking project
I'm looking forward to finally getting my kids woodworking in the shop. I know they'll love this project.
Great book...and great projects!
Saw this featured on the Wood Whisperer's live session...he loved it, so I thought I'd take a look. Excellent book. I was into skateboarding as a kid and now I have my own kids who love to build stuff. Now we're all building skateboards together. Have to say, it's a really fun new angle on woodworking. Great photos...the right mix of projects (FYI -- woodbending never looked so easy) and the skateboarding history was fascinating. I'll be putting this book -- and a couple of skateboards -- under some trees this Christmas...
