How To Make A Tech Deck Skate Park
Learning how to make a tech deck skate park is not too hard. All that you need to undertake the building of a miniature park for your finger skateboard is some time and materials. Following is advice on how to make a tech deck skate park.
- Large, flat piece of wood for the base
- Several sheets of balsa wood
- X-acto knife
- Wood glue
- First, buy all of the supplies that you will need. The base may be bought at any home improvement or construction supply store, and the rest of the materials can be found at arts and crafts stores.
- Then, on the base board, begin constructing jumps, spaced far enough apart for you to maneuver the tech deck board with your hands. To build jumps, cut balsa wood to the shapes of the sides, and glue it together.
- To make a standard ramp, cut two identically sized right triangles out from a balsa wood sheet. Then, cut a piece that is the length of the hypotenuse of those triangles, and as wide as you want the ramp to be. Glue these together, as the sides and front, sloped part, and then cut out the back piece (height of triangles by the width of the jump) and glue it on.
- To make bigger jumps, use cardboard as a frame. Glue the basic structure, of cardboard, together, and then glue balsa wood sheets onto it. Balsa wood is fragile, and this will give the larger jumps and rams some support.
- To make grind rails, bend any wire so that it has two legs, and a long, horizontal part. Drill small holes in the wooden base, dab glue on the ends (legs) of the wire, and place the rails in the holes to mount them.
- Continue building jumps, ramps, and rails, until your skate park is done. You may also buy and install toy trees to make the park realistic, with natural obstacles.
Learning how to make a tech deck skate park is a fun arts and crafts project. With the right materials, you can add any structures to the miniature park that you want, and have great fun using it with your tech deck board.
