DIY Skateboard Kit
DIY Skateboard Kit
Our skateboard decks are pressed in our shop with multiple layers of FCS certified maple veneers at the core and decorative, bookmatched veneers on the top and bottom. Make one of our tried and true shapes or create your own unique shape out of the supplied rectangular blank. Our skateboard kits include everything you need to build a beautiful, one of a kind skateboard, except tools and the space to build it.
While some woodworking experience can be helpful, if you’re good with your hands, can work carefully with an attention to detail and follow written instructions, you should be able to tackle this project with great success. Most people take 3-5 hours of hands-on time to complete a board and have it ready to ride. You can get your board shaped and sanded with the truck holes and ready for finish in 2-3 hours. Finishing goes quickly but there is some dying time to account for. We know that you’ll love the feeling of hitting the pavement on a Homegrown Skateboard Kit you built yourself.
