Description:

The Woodsmith Blank DIY custom snowboard is your ticket to join Matt Cummins and the Lib experiMENTAL division on the creative journey. Ride anything really is the story in powder… set your mind free and add some power tools and there are no limits. You might just create the world’s best pow board on your front porch. The ultimate DIY project!

Instructions:

1.) Decide the purpose of your new snowboard and its shape: Are you going to ride just groomers? Deep pow?

2.) Figure out your height, weight, and boot size.

3.) Look to your favorite boards for examples. Measure it’s width, nose, tail, waist, length, and contact areas. You can even trace it’s sidecut to get the exact same thing on your blank.

4.) Decide how long you want your board and how large of a nose and tail.

5.) Decide how wide you want the blank in the waist area somewhere between the inserts and the nose and tail area.

6.) Decide where the sidecut of the board is the narrowest.

7.) Decide if you want your sidecut centered in your stance or back a couple inches. Back from center will help keep the nose up a little in deep snow.

8.) Use old some plates, bowls, or old boards to make nose and tail curves.

9.) Mark all the measurements needed and finalize your lines to cut the blank out.

10.) Clamp the board down firmly to a bench for cutting.

11.) Make a practice cut on the corners to get the feel.

12.) Carefully slide in your blade at FULL speed and perfectly cut out your shape (Cut out your sidecut with a skill saw).

13.) Using a jigsaw, cut the nose and tail.

14.) Sand the sawed areas, leave the sidewall sharp towards the base.

15.) Seal the edges.

16.) Hot wax the base and sidewalls and get to shredding!

Tools/Supplies Needed:

  • Steel ruler
  • Tape measure
  • Sharpie pen
  • 1/4" - 1/2" tape for laying down the side cut curves, or a long piece of thin metal. Even tracing your old boards sidecut will work here.
  • Jigsaw with Perma-Grit and or Metal cutting blades for cutting composites.
  • Skill saw, professional framing saw with power
  • Japanese brands, think kerf 7" saw blades. Brands like Matsushita or Tenryu. Used for cutting the sidecut. I learned this from building wooden skateboard bowls. The thin kerf blade will bend and allow you to rip a perfect sidecut in your board.
  • Clamps and vises
  • Work bench
  • Sand paper and sanding block
  • Loctite brand Super glue, with application brush, or epoxy, or something to finish and seal the sidewalls to your liking.
  • Old snowboards to measure sidecuts and widths
  • Random bowls and other shapes objects for tail and nose designs
  • Citrus base cleaner, to clean off sharpie marks on the blank
  • Gloves
  • Dust mask
