Instructions and Help about What Form 8815 Cashed

Hello I'm cash from cashed out boards and this is the complete guide to making a longboard in this video I'll go over everything you need to know to make your very own longboard just like this one let's get started the first step is planning out your board I knew my board was going to be 10 inches by 38 it was going to be symmetrical and it was going to have kicks and concave once you've got a shape and size in mind for your board you could begin marking out your materials for my board I'm doing 4 plies of eighth inch Baltic birch plywood while marking up your plywood make sure you use a square or straight edge so everything stays precise Baltic birch plywood tends to be pretty flexible one way and fairly rigid the other keep this in mind while laying out your board next it's time to cut out your sheets of plywood I use the circular saw for the cut make sure that your plywood is clamped down and that you always wear safety glasses now that you've got your plywood cut out you're going to need to make a press to turn the wood into a long board start by finding a very sturdy board that's a little bit longer and a little bit wider than the board you're trying to make next find some long skinny strips of wood which will be used to give the board concave also if you want kick tails find subscribes to do that too to press the board into place I made my own clamping system to make a press system like mine you'll need to start by cutting four two by fours which are about four inches wider than the width of the sturdy board which you're going to press your long board on then cut four pieces of threaded metal rod the rod has to be long enough to go through two two by fours the plywood of the long board the sturdy board that you're using for the press and it also has to have room for nuts and washers make sure you smooth down the ends with a grinder so the nuts will start smooth and so you don't get cut next drill a hole at each end of each 2x4 that you cut earlier the hole should be about two inches in from the end and dead center the hole should be slightly bigger than the threaded metal rod that you just cut then get some nuts and washers that'll fit over the threaded rods you cut here's a shot of all the materials you'll need to press your board now we'll do a quick explanation of how the press works all right so here's the press just set up with one sheet of plywood in there to demonstrate how it works so you have your bolts going through here with the nuts attached and the plates to up spread out the pressure on the board so they don't go through and when you tighten them it puts pressure on this and bends the board into your shape next cut some cardboard spreaders to spread the glue also get some wood glue I'd recommend tight bond two or three now it's time to actually press your board get the concave and kick tail shim set up and place the first sheet of plywood on it to get ready for gluing squeeze on a lot of glue and spread it evenly make sure you get the edges I'd recommend getting somebody to help you with this process because it makes it a lot quicker and easier once you've got glue evenly spread on your first sheet of plywood evenly spread glue on another one then place that sheet on the first sheet with the glue sides touching it's always better to have too much glue than not enough repeat this process until all your sheets of plywood have glue on them obviously don't glue the top side of the top sheet next get your clamp system setup make sure everything is centered over the press and that you tighten down your bolts evenly you can measure the gap from the top 2x4 to the bottom 2x4 to make sure everything is the same and even once that's all set add extra clamps is needed to make sure there's no separation between any of the layers of plywood this will ensure your final product is super sturdy and will last forever double-check everything and say a prayer to the longboard god after about 24 hours you could unclamp your pressed longboard well you way it's a good idea to make a full-scale pattern of the board you planned out earlier this will make it easy to transfer your actual design onto your longboard once the board is out of the press I like to start by making a centerline and marking off the parts that you could actually use this will make it a lot easier to layout your board the next step is to take your template which you made earlier and trace that onto the board again make sure everything is clear and centered when you trace this so you get a real nice final product here's my board all laid out and run for the next step cutting it out to cut out my board I used a jig saw but a bandsaw would also work great make sure you use safety glasses will you do this and let your longboard is clamped down also cut slightly outside the line because you could always take more material off but you can't put it back on once I got my longboard cut out with my jig saw I continued to rough out the shape by using a belt sander this allows you to shape the board fairly quickly before you focus on the fine details which I'll talk.
