How to Make a Longboard (Shortboard/Cruiser) -06

How to make a solid wood shortboard/cruiser longboard. Its made from solid maple and cherry. I used some recycled skateboard wood as inlays on the nose and tail. The final dimensions of the board are 7.5 inches (193mm) wide by 24 inches (607mm) long and 1/2 inch thick.

Lean your board vertically against something for it to dry. You wont get nearly as much pesky wood beads. I think it also makes the bond stronger. But I could be wrong. Regardless, your way worked just as fine.

Dave Pelcher says:

Awesome video, would love to see a long board being made.  Do you make any with curves?

Baaconstrip says:

How would you do if you had to bend the tail and the nose ? (and the deck ?) Cut through the wood and carve it ?

Brian Gingerich says:

You should show us how it works! Great looking board I love the inlays, very cool!

Kelp Forest says:

Nice one! Have to point out that when gluing-up you should spread the glue and alternate the clamps for a tighter bond. Finished product looks great!

Easter Stedman says:

Great to see that… I made it too. Using woodprix handbooks :)

Remington Mcneese says:

Just google WoodPrix 😉 I made my own thanks to WoodPrix instructions :)

That looks pretty sweet. I want to do one where I steam bend wood boards and make a pattern like you did so I could have that tail bend.
