How to Build a Skateboard: Deck Pressing

September 11, 2011

Learn how we press our decks!  In video we are pressing 7-ply decks out of 1/16″ hard rock maple.  Each veneer is coated with glue and the 7 layers are stacked together to make a deck.  The stack of veneers is then placed between two rubber-polycarbonate sheets.  This helps to create a completely uniform pressure distribution across the face of the deck in the press.  Boards are pressed for over 2 hours at 56 Tons in our custom-made hydraulic press.  This 2 hour long pressing time enhances the strength, durability, and flex life of our boards.  We press 2 longboards at a time.
