Back in the days before Tech Decks we had to make our own fingerboards.
The fingerboards are constructed of several thin pieces of cardboard laminated with Elmer's glue.
The trucks were made of tiny pieces of balsa wood, the wheels cannibalized from Hot wheels cars.
I would cut graphics from adds in skate magazines and glue them to the deck with stick glue, then I would finish it off with a piece of clear contac paper. Keep in mind, I was like fourteen when I made these so the craftsmanship is a bit inmature .
The grip tape job is unfinished. I planed to put R.I.P.-Grip on the top for finger control!
At one point I had an awesome fingerboard vert ramp which I made in shop class. The vert ramp was about 24"x40" complete with coping, full decks, a roll-in, channel and plenty of tiny stickers at the tile level. I kick myself for throwing that ramp away. Ah, but I digress...
