Behind the Scenes: How Skateboards are Made

created at: 02/03/2011

I imagine I've spent a total of three minutes on a skateboard in my entire life. But, with their bent plywood construction and screenprinted original artwork, there's plenty reason they end up as art objects and media for contemporary designers.

What I love about this video is that each of the French company Rekiem decks are made by hand: hand lamininated, formed, cut on the bandsaw, sanded, and profiled with a trim router. While I'm sure some companies uses mechanized systems (or do they?), each Rekiem skateboard is its own woodworking project.
