Skateboard Rack

 

Here is the easy and fun torched DIY Skateboard Wall Rack project you can take on during the weekend. This wall rack can be used to hang skateboards, long boards, paddleboards, surfboard, etc. and looks great in any room of the house.

Directions

  1. Trace the pencil drawing with a Scorch marker.

  2. Push the trigger and ignite the flame on your Bernzomatic T3500.
  3. Turn the dial to a very low setting. Start at the lowest if you feel uncertain.
  4. Glide the flame over the design.

  5. Cut two additional pieces of wood to size.
  6. Lay the two pieces of wood perpendicular to the planks on each side to use as a back brace. Leave gaps in-between planks.
  7. Use wood glue to attach the back brace to the planks.
  8. Secure it with a nail gun.

  9. Measure and mark where you would like to place the wooden dowels. We needed a rack to hold a skateboard, a long board and a rip stick, so we measured accordingly. Use a drill bit to drill holes. This step makes it easier for you to see where to attach the wood dowls from the back of the skateboard rack.
  10. Cut two dowels for each board. For example, we cut 6 dowls for 3 boards. Cut the dowels so that they are 7 inches long with one side at a thirty-degree angle.
  11. Place wood glue on the angled side and screw in each dowel to the rack.
  12. Hang the rack by screwing it directly into the wall.

Tips

Here are a few tips and tricks to creating your own design

  1. Arrange the wood planks together so that they touch. We decided to off-set every other plank.
  2. Use a pencil first so that you can easily erase mistakes.
  3. Look for inspiration online. Print out a picture and copy it onto your wood canvas.
