Longboard Model : Metals II Final | Spring 2014

  •      For our Metals II final assignment, we could tackle anything we wanted as long as we put to use all of the skills we had gained throughout the course.
    I decided to fabricate a 1:3 scale model of a longboard.
    Precision Trucks: Aluminum
    Deck: bent lamination, walnut veneer
    Wheels: Nylon
    Hardware: Hex nuts, threaded rod, screws
  • Process
    milling base plates and hangers
  • turning nylon wheels
  • Final model
    Base plates and hangers were sandblasted and assembled. Nylon wheels were attached
    to trucks. Deck was cut and shaped after being pressed. Holes were later
    drilled and countersunk to attach all components together.
