good job Karl
top idea to put up something where ideas can be shared
these are a few longboards Ive done for mates
using australian timbers
jarrah , blackwood and tassie oak
I try to get that 60,s feel by sticking to traditional mal shapes
the deck bottoms are shaped like a mal too
helps for wheel bite but I just like doing it
beats the shit outa watching tele on a rainy day

prepped for glue laminate and dowell the string then a feather join for the wings

in clamps

blanks cut
shaping the bottom like a surfboard

shaping dun

spraying

setup

finished decks
different shapes in blackwood

Great to see you're still pumping out decks Paul.
The shot of the one above had me drooling. Very Happy

I've got all the timber, just need the time to make one of my own. Very Happy

hey fitz
thanks for that mate
Im liking your latest too
if you are going to make one and want the measurements check with hop
he has a few in stock and Im pretty sure he has one setup so you could try it out
I sit around 80 kg and find em pretty rigid but they have just a bit o flex when you pump or carve hard
cheers

G'day Hamish
that was for Pete ( retroskate)
its just shy of 1200mm long
he wanted a huge cruiser I think he uses it for family holidays
sorta like the truckster
the pic doesnt show it real well but the blackwood was bookmatched
still hope to catch up for a roll if my ankle ever gets better
been nearly 8 months and still cant put much pressure on it
sucks getting old
cheers Paul

Hey Paul, I'm still using your deck as my daily roll to work and back. After 12 months it is not showng any sign of wear at all. I'm back on tracker fast tracks as they make for a super stable set-up at speed. Gullwing turn better when you want tight carves, but I've got other set-ups for that. I'm trying a set of 3dm Avila 75mm wheels at the moment and still no wheel bite.

By the way I'm doing a special for the month of February: Ace trucks.. 22's or 33's and bones stf or spf wheels for $120 also SKF abec 5 bearings for $35.

I wear-in the SKF's on my long boards and then they absolutely rip at the skate park.

Anyway, I've only got one of your decks left in stock, you better get some more underway.

How's the drop-thru coming along ?

Bye for now,
