  • Jigsaw
  • Protective eyewear
  • Gardening gloves
  • Super glue
  1. Choose your glove design. The first step in learning how to make longboard gloves is choosing which style you want to make. Some people prefer to have one piece of plastic for each individual finger, while others like one piece of plastic covering two fingers. Decide which you are more comfortable with and move on to the next step.
  2. Cut down the Corian plastic tiles using the jigsaw. The next step in learning how to make longboard gloves is cutting down the Corian plastic tiles to fit your design. Be extremely careful when using the jigsaw to cut down the plastic tiles and always remember to wear protective eyewear.
