Introducing the Alien Workshop DIY Deck Kit. The kit includes a 7 ply maple skateboard blank, a shape template sheet, three logo stencils, and detailed instructions. This shit is perfect for shop class or anyone who wants to get handy. Be in control of your own board. The blank can accommodate a shape up to 9'' wide x 33'' long. There are laser engraved center lines on the top of the deck so that the shape can easily be lined up, and the truck holes are pre drilled for a 14 1/4'' wheel base. The shape templates include a standard street shape, an old school shape, and a cruiser shape. They can be used as is, or simply as a starting point. Limitless by Design.
