Cutting Your Own Deck Shape?

Anyone out there besides me, cutting out their own decks?

I have been doing this since I first started skating back when a skateboard was 3/4" oak with a glued on kick tail sanded to a slope. I even made asymmetrical 7 ply boards as far back as 1980s.

I'm having a bit of fear in finding suppliers for uncut blanks in the USA, made in USA. With the massive wave of importing here in the USA I fear for the industry here. I found Skatepaige and have purchased. These are super good, as good a maple can get, no complaints and recommend. BUT, always looking for other suppliers. I have found 1 other seller but cant locate them now.

Anyone know of a seller of blank uncut laminated stock to cut from?

You could try pressing your own, it's not too difficult.

Just ask Mr Trump to slap some import tariffs on 'em. That'll soon sort the import problem out. :-)
