Hello to all my builders. I think I've found a skateboard deck with no other purpose than the need to sling stones. I was curious how others have repurposed this wood in the past. Do you leave the black deck grip on the board, or remove it somehow? Any tips from other builders is appreciated! Thanks :)

The deck I have been using didnt have the grip tape on it but I would remove it if it did. And following up on what Matt said, I usually stick on a printed template with some repositionable spray adhesive. I just find it convenient to work that way. Oh, and I face the curve towards target, i.e. the concave side is target side but a few guys here do prefer it the other way round so I guess it's really up to you.

Skateboard deck is superb material for a boardcut, it's light, rigid and strong. Enjoy your build! Looking forward to seeing it...
