In this multi-scale, multi-disciplinary project, students got to design and construct their own skateboard from start to finish. First, we gave students a challenge to design a graphic based on a geometric form and an action verb (i.e. Square + Twist). After drawing this design in Adobe Illustrator, students copied, pasted, and reflected the individual graphic unit into a pattern. This design was then laser-etched onto the bottom layer of skateboard veneer, then seven layers were glued and pressed together using a bottle jack press with 2000 lbs of pressure. After 24 hours, the skateboard was removed from the press and students put their carpentry skills to use, ripping down the edges, bandsaw-cutting the front curves, and routing the edges. Lastly, students each attached trucks and wheels and a layer of grip tape.
