I've always wondered how skateboard decks are made. For my project I decided to research this. There are many steps to this process.

Skateboard decks are made of sheets of maple wood, usually around 30-31" long, and around 7.5-8.5" wide. Decks are made of 7 layers of these sheets, all put together into a press that squishes them all together, adding concave to the board, which is what make you pop tricks high and flip them fast.
