Lead Image

We don’t often find DIY duplexing — much less triplexing! — and this one is surely one of a kind. Using Neenah Astrobrights and wood veneer with a thin layer of book-binding glue, it stands out from the pack.

Project Description

My little dude turned four this year, we celebrated at a skate park. For his invitation, I wanted to design a skateboard deck with hand lettering. He was basically the art director...picked out the neon paper and made sure it had bolts on it because he's fast and four!

Production Lesson(s)

Triplex paper is a showstopper! When making your own, be sure to use a thin layer of book-binding glue between the layers to adhere, worked like a charm. ”
