trucks and wheels are on it. its on my desk right next to me

Im thinkin about making decks and selling them, what do you guys think? They wont all be fish (it was a bitch to cut) and they wont have the grip tape that intricate ( that took 2 hours lol) but i could just press blanks and cut them, sell the decks for like 50-100 bucks?

wheels, bearings, and trucks are under a 100 bucks, so right there your better off buying this than a sector 9 price wise.

i'd say if you put the kinda effort you did in that one, and used it on a couple boards out of the lot you can mark up the price at least $20 or so. i'd buy one if i wasn't broke everyday of the year.

ok, well ill start pressing some wood and see if i can come up with a more efficient way of building them. 2 coats of man o war marine veneer make the surface look killer, the pics up there only have one coat. I know everyone whos seen it wants me to make them one, but idk how serious they would be about buying one ya know?

heres the bottom with trucks and 2 coats

google can do wonders.... Ill see what I can find as well & get back to you on here... I think the main part will be finding a base pattern for attatching bindings... most likely a machine shop.
