Customer Story: Ben Paik from Woby DesignWe visited Ben Paik from Woby Design who uses the Laguna Tools 14-12 bandsaw and the SuperMax Tools 16-32 drum sander to turn broken skateboards into beautiful recycled pieces of furniture and art!
SKATEBOARD MADE OUT OF BROKEN SKATEBOARDSHere it is, I've always wondered and you all wanted it so I made a skateboard out of broken skateboards!
If you are not already, check out my Instagram account @WobyDesign where I post daily updates on projects that I'm working on!
It all starts the same, degrip, sand off graphics and residues, chop into sections, trim the edges. Because I was using just broken skateboards, I had to stagger these pieces for the glue up. Having a square plywood frame will help for resawing.
Thanks to Laguna for coming by and doing a short video on Woby Design! Here's the link for that video: https://youtu.be/amo_2BORcm8
Resawing is still scary for me and tough for me to get it dead on straight, nice, clean veneers. So I give myself extra room for error so I can always sand it down smooth with my drum sander. I also cut some veneers off camera to make those cross veneers.
The glue up worked surprisingly well! I don't know why I decided to wrap it with clear wrap but good thing I did because it rained the next couple days! I let it sit in the press for 5-7 days, and then let it dry for another week.
Then it's just cutting it to the final shape, rounding the edges, and finishing with lacquer.
So before I had my friend skate it for the B-Roll shots, I got to enjoy it for couple months riding around. I'm not much of a skater and I just know how to cruise around so it was perfect for me. It's a shame that it's now broken but it just means I need to make it better next time(which won't be for a while so don't even ask).
Thanks for watching and reading up to this far. You my true fan and I love you. I know some of you might think this is my friend's fault for being the poser that he is, but I know this has nothing to do with his poor skating skills and it's really all on me and this skateboard. So if you read up to this far, let's make my friend smile a bit and comment, "Gnarly BURNSIDE flip!"
Thanks, love you xoxo

The Super Max 16-32 Surface SanderSurface sanders, also called drum sanders, have really come a long way. It’s not that long ago that you’d only find surface sanders in large, commercial shops. Today, sanders have become way more prevalent in small shops, and way more accessible to woodworkers.
SuperMax has been a name in the surface sander world for a long time. I saw the SuperMax 16-32 at a woodworking show, and couldn’t wait to check it out up close. I finally got that chance. Here’s your look at the machine.
In general, I like having a surface sander because it speeds up my woodworking, and does a great job on dust collection. It’s lots faster to feed project parts through a sander than it is to run a random orbit sander over every piece. To be fair you’ll still have to do some random orbit work, but very little is required following a surface sander. And, with a good dust collector, you’ll see very little airborne wood dust.
With regards to the 16-32 in particular, here’s some stuff I really like:
Quick advance on height changes. No need to spin the handwheel a million times. Just use the quick move lever when you’re going from thin to thick to thin.
Folding infeed and outfeed tables. Don’t need ‘em? Fold them out of the way.
IntelliSand. The machine automatically reduces the feed rate on the conveyor if you’re trying to take off too much material per pass.
Easy to sand wide parts. This machine handles material up to 32” wide. It’s very easy to do a reset on the sanding head to allow this.

Sanding is a necessary part of woodworking. And there’s more to it than just rubbing sandpaper back and forth on your projects. Learn more by watching more videos on sanding.
