The Long Board Project - Skateboard Design / by Shane Acuff

One day Shane found an extra board laying around and decided that it looked like it wanted to be something else.

Wonder what it feels like to become something new after so long as something else.

As Shane carves out the shape of the board, with just a small bit gone the wood has been transformed.

Then the base coat begins and the board starts to take on some personality.

From the forest to the lumber mill to the home depot to a random storage area, this piece of wood, once part of a majestic tree, probably never imagined after all those stops that it would end up being a beautiful and beloved skateboard in the end.
