To build aboard from wooden pallets, the first step involves finding a wooden pallet. There are many types. For this board I found a pallet that was a lot lighter than most of the others. Sometimes I chose pallets based on weight other times based on wood grains or a really rustic and worn down look.
Next it's time to take apart the pallet and denail it. This can be tricky and can result in wood splitting and breaking.
Because the panels are often different thickness I then cut them into even strips, in this case 5cm wide. Then cut these strips down to a thickness of 6mm.
Lastly any pieces that are spilt or have imperfections I cut into 6mm wide strips that I will use to build the rails on my board. From this one pallet I will have almost enough wood to make a board. This will be a thruster, 6'3
All of this took 3 hours. Next part will involve the frame and ribs.
