Skateboard / Longboard Building Workshop @ Lee Valley - JUNE 30, 2018

Regular price $150.00

LOCATION: Lee Valley Tools Ltd. 3060 Davidson Court Burlington, ON
TIME: 9 AM - 4 PM

Build a skateboard or longboard as part of the Fusion Labworks skateboard building tour!

This is a great introduction to woodworking for youth, and an excellent opportunity to learn hands-on skills.

Starting with an uncut blank, you’ll draw your skateboard or longboard shape, and then cut it out with a bandsaw. (No experience necessary!  We will teach you safe tool usage.) You’ll then sand it down and drill the holes. In the afternoon portion of the workshop, you’ll use spray paint, sharpies and stencils to customize the bottom of your new board.  You are welcome to bring a friend or guardian to help build your board at no extra cost.

Because of the wide range in trucks, wheels, bearings and hardware, these components are not provided. We recommend picking some up from your local skateboard shop before the workshop. We will demonstrate how to affix the hardware so you can do this at home. Ages 12+.
