Ace!

Assuming this is made from an uncut blank?

It looks lovely.

Thanks guys. This deck was made from a skatepaige blank. A paper template traced from an OG full size McGill, a jigsaw, a router and a palm sander. Oh and the stain is done with createx airbrush paint, you can get it at a hobby store.

What do you think of the wood on his blanks? Been thinking about picking a few up since they're so freaking cheap.
Just wondered if the wood was decent or just something to shape, paint, & hang.

Its not bad wood to be honest and the shapes that I've made with these ride fine... especially for how cheap they are like you say.

I do experimental pop shapes with these as well and it's a great way to take ideas from oldschool shaped decks and incorporate some character. Its pretty obvious to everyone now that you don't have to be riding a boring pop shape, it can have character and still function to today's standards.

Thanks for the info on the wood. Make sure you post some of the others when you get around to it(I'll do the same).

I decided to give this boring 8.5 pop some shape. I used my Hack Saw III as a template and it came out real purdy.

I cut up a Heroin with razored tail and cracked rails into a cruiser for the kids. I traced the nose off a Lush Huna.

Looking good gents.

The Hack Saw shape looks ace!

Funnily enough, I have also used a Lush board as a template and cut up an old heroin deck..

Nice shape doowyrag. Think I might trim the rails back after looking at that.

Good stuff guys, am I reading this correctly? Both of you used the same deck as a template and both of the decks that were cut are of the same brand? If so that is crazy cool....

If you can't get the company to do it than ... do it yourself

Recently, I made these for a friend's charitable cause.
Two of them will go up for auction or lottery.

Cool stuff guys. I pressed a longboard in my shop a few years ago. I'll try and post some pics later.

Claus Grabke inspired graphic I just finished
Instead of an exploding clock, I did an exploding Porsche engine
It's a gift for a friend, who specializes in rebuilding Porsche engines (hope he likes pink :mrgreen: )
Made the deck from an uncut blank and spraypaint...
Just needs a final coat of clear and then it'll be on it's way to Germany

Whew. Fantastic work!

Major attention to detail with that spray paint. Hand cut stencils?

I pressed this deck with a home made mold a few years back. That was fun. Might be fun to design a mold for pool blanks some day. Might have to break out spray paint next time. Jereon's deck came out rad

I used a vinyl plotter to cut the stencils.

Here's another deck I did a while ago
Made it for a friend who organised a small car event
Posters for the event were screenprinted by a French artist
I took that design and put it on a 8.375 blank popsickle
Left the top blank, so everyone at the event could sign it
Made for a great gift
