Skateboard Flower

Craft & Design

PT @ MAKE shares this skateboard flower by Ted Hunter, who writes:

This piece, I built is called Reach for Light. It was last shown at the Wood Turning Center in Philadelphia but was originally built for an art exhibition in Hawaii . It’s a good example of free hand vacuum veneer bending. The flower petal designs are actually printed using photo’s of real tulip petals. The inside is printed griptape (sticky back sandpaper) and the outside is printed styrene. The internal core is Canadian maple veneer. The shape of the decks are our Roarockit classic pintail skateboard shape that is included in our longboard deck kits.
