How to Make a Mini Finger Skateboard

Making your finger skateboard

This project requires a few simple techniques to achieve great results.

To make, simply measure, cut, glue and layer your veneers together. Then, using mini finger skateboard decks as a mould, sandwich your glued veneers between two decks and clamp together. Leave to dry overnight if possible until fully dry.

Once dry, you will need to sand your deck to your required skateboard shape, shaping the edges using a disk sander or hand abrasive. Then cut and glue your optional finger skateboard deck grip to the top.

Next, using your mini skateboard decks as a guide, drill the holes for the trucks and wheels and attach. These can easily be bought online. 

And there you have your finished finger skateboard.
