OH MY!! That is simply beautiful!
Fabulous Wood Working Skills Dad!!

So how will it handle? Does it feel like a rider? Set it up, lets see it with
Yellow wheels, and some vintage style trucks of your choosing...

OR some BDS Ju Ju green wheels would look fantastic as well!
Cheers
David

Unfuckinbelievable!!!  Your very fortunate to have such a talented dad that could/would make make that for you. 

How long did it take to make it?

Its like a wood sculpture, of a very unique skateboard.

I would love to see him give a thick pig the same treatment.

Thanks to all for the overwhelming positive response to this posting. I will pass on your coments especially as he didn't really understand why a 42 year old man wanted a wooden skateboard deck made, one that could not be ridden (walnut not as strong as fiberglass in these thicknesses!)
My Dad made me various decks as a child in the 70s including a laminated rocker deck, at the sime I just wanted a Fiberflex but I feel very different now about those decks and his skills.
This one was really just an experiment and is actually made of two offcuts of walnut rather than use a single piece.

Fink, I think he meant that the deck is in two pieces. Look at the center line you can see the seem. But still a freaking beautiful piece of art.

Ed, whatever it takes right?  1, 2, 3, pieces.......If it comes out like THAT he could use 20!

I will pay for enough wood for 5 more if I get ONE!

Your dad is an awesome craftsman !!!


Definitely a hanger .................well, maybe a leaner. Hanging it would require drilling

Probably used two "scrap" pieces joined. It wouldn't be a functional "rider" but my old, busted up ass ain't "riding" anyhow. It would make a nice piece mounted in a shadow box, hanging in my "Gallery."
