Wow! This thread really blew up! On the first look I couldn’t decide if I should participate because something I start on may not make it to the shooting range! I also end up having numerous projects going at once because I need to pick my makery window and then unpack the garage to get to most of my power tools. So with that, this is what’s on the menu likely through the end of August which is my best guess right now. You’ll see some Lizards, some Ply-projects, a cutting board tryout, an attempt at an IBjoe Curve that is over a year old and still not right, and a Hoggy Wild Custom-ish Seal Sniper being formed. Wish me luck! View attachment 371171
Oh wow! A plethora of creativity right there!
Enjoy it eh!!??

Found an old skateboard in someone’s trash at the street, grabbed it up and got a few good blanks from it.

I managed to squeeze a mid sized Chalice out of the very front / flat section where the trucks attach.
It still has two holes where the mounting screws went through, but still extremely solid…..waste not, want not LOL…. I briefly thought of plugging the holes with a dowel rod section, but then thought NAH, it’ll be alright !

I’ll put band grooves in next, then put CA glue on the edges, sand that back smooth and spray with poly to keep the graphics from coming off any further.

The holes are part of the origin story of the frame.
And there is a symmetry to them as well.
When a guy makes a natural and has a story as to how he found or harvested the Y it is interesting. A back story so to speak.
And there was a back story to your skateboard frame.
Hope that explains.........

Put a fresh wide blade on the bandsaw so it got tested out on a piece of maple firewood and out popped this Recurve.
And so while the sander rig was out an older ash and walnut Whale got finished up too.
And then of course had to band them up along with a couple more favourites......
The Whales don't look as nice to my eye but boy they sure are comfortable to hold!
