MAKING THE LONGBOARD SKATEBOARD DECK mage of skateboard class students
Instructor: Caleb Gallentine (an NC State student)

For NC State students only - no experience needed. Intensely hands-on! Make a custom-sized longboard skateboard you can ride and enjoy for years. Students will learn to laminate plys of Baltic birch into the necessary complex curves. The form will then be cut with the band saw, drilled, routed and sanded to final shape. By the end of the three classes, you will have a finished longboard deck ready for wheels.


Thursday evenings for 3 weeks, 6:30 - 9:30 pm, June 12 – 26

Prerequisite: Willing to learn a little woodworking while you make your deck
