We put out a request on Facebook and Twitter for some used skateboards and right away, one of my wife’s cousins offered up a stack of his old decks. Off to Home Depot we went to pick up the other wood and hardware we needed.
Materials & Tools
The materials are very simple. A few pieces of wood, some screws, bolts and we’re ready to go.
- 4 old skateboards, preferably nicely used and colorful for the “cool” effect.
- 8 – 3 inch bolts with washers, and locking nuts
- 2 – 2×3 boards for the structure
- 24 – 21/2 inch screws
- Drill with wood bit & screw bit & a good wrench
- Measuring tape & pencil
Here’s our finished picnic table.
