Build a Longboard
Make something fun while learning new skills
Synopsis: Before Chris Gochnour became a furnitiure maker, he had his own business building and selling skateboards. His love of skateboarding led to a love of woodworking, and the rest is history. Recently his children reintroduced him to board making because they wanted longboards of their own. The classic longboard is a great project for woodworkers.
