Skateboard with money design engraved on wood. Still need to sand and stain.
Used a Vision 2550 CNC Router to cut out the shape of the board than to engrave the money design.
It's still not done needs to be sanded and stained.
Yes I'll post the file up when I get the chance.
Ok the skateboard is done! Here are some final pics and some info.
This is my Make Money Skate Board which has a US dollar look to it. It's marketing piece made to attract attention yet still show the benefits of our product, that being engraving & routing machines.
The skateboard was cut out and engraved on a 2550 CNC Router, the design was all made on CorelDraw than exported as a PDF, which was than imported into Vision PRO Engraving software.
Skateboard wooden blanks can be purchased online for around $20.00 add in little elbow grease and you get a great promotional piece, and a good excuse to ride a skateboard at work lol.
The top of the skateboard has acrylic inlays which was cut out using a 1624 engraver, again going with the Money motif we have the dollar symbol on both ends and a modified US Dollar graphic also on acrylic inlayed in the center.
I'm not in the skateboard industry so I'm not sure how skateboards are really made, but I can imagine laying out a bunch of blanks and letting the CNC router do all the work. These longboard style
skateboards go for about a $100.00 to $200.00, so spending $20.00 on a skateboard blank seemed like pocket changed as opposed to buying a skateboard than cutting out the dollar graphic on this new skateboard.
Also having the actual shape of the skateboard routed out with our machine shows another benefit.
Also you can download the files from this post, follow the link below.
