Parent/Child Making a Skateboard or Longboard with Scott Dillion July 16-17, 2022
Scott and his daughter made their first skateboard in a workshop with Chris Gochnour at MASW ten years ago. Since then Scott has incorporated making skateboards into his middle school technology classes. Building a skateboard requires many basic woodworking skills such as stock preparation and lamination. Participants will have a great time designing boards and selecting beautiful and interesting woods to create a distinctive style. The boards will remind you of the classic “woody” surfboards where craftsmen incorporated exotic woods that created an original style. Bring out your younger side or engage in a great parent/child woodworking activity. Note…parents will not be required to “try it out” upon completion. Trucks and wheels are not included, but suggestions will be given on where to purchase them before the class.
