    The bodies look killer and do not sell them separately at this time. (Wish they did lol)

    Those look great. A lot of people either don’t pay attention to them or just dismiss them, but skateboards have been a medium for a lot of unique artists for decades. This looks like an interesting evolution of that.

    fun/interesting instrument(s).

    i think a lot of things in our modern/wasteful world could be re-purposed for musical instruments. i'm amused/piqued by many. not sure any of them are worth the retail, however, including this one.

    Makes sense - you are taking plies of hardwood glued together, and gluing them together - simple enough. I did not know that most decks were the same shape. I figured with the different bending, you would not be able to do this.
