If you're tired of those boring shop class projects, get your teacher to instruct the class in how to build a skateboard instead. The Roarockit Skateboard Company has a kit for building one that is perfect for school. This is a serious kit, suitable for real use. The kit also comes with a video so teachers can familiarize themselves with the process. Preparing wood veneers, gluing layers of wood together, hand vacuum use, and proper gluing techniques are just a few of the skills learned with this project.
