Turning A Skateboard Into A Pen

For this weeks video I made another pen turning video with a twist!  I had a bunch of skateboards donated to me by a few skater friends and decided to finally dust them off and make something useful.

I used a Sierra style pen kit to make the pen and got to play with a few new tools and materials.  My bench bandsaw did a great job chopping the skateboard down and a generous dose of Gorilla Glue was the perfect adhesive.

If you’re feeling inspired by this video and you’d like to try woodturning, recycling skateboards or general wood wizardry then please find a list of tools and materials I used to make this project…

Broken/old/unused skateboards

I’m afraid I couldn’t find any links to these but it’s worth asking around your old skater pals, skate shops or even ebay!
