Homemade Snowboard!

Okay, I'm sharing a proud moment here....

My little (well, 16yr. old) brother made himself a snowboard!

So, he started by doing a bit of research on the internet, then went out and cut apart an old wood pallet. Ripped up the pieces on the table saw, cut them out and glued them together. Then he steam bended the ends over the wood cook stove in the garage and then finally waxed it and attached the plastic feet he gleaned off a broken snowboard.

Quite a learning experience, works great, recycled materials and no money spent! Way to go Steve!!
