Cool Homemade Board Me and my Dad made

Heres a quick board me and my dad made for me to work on when I am racing

I bought a sheet of plexiglass from Orchard Supply and Hardware(6.99 18 x 24) and some rivets.

Took us about 45min to cut, drill, and rivet. Let me know what you guys think

Nice work. How much did it cost you to make it?

I bought a single sheet 18 x 24 of plexiglass. Obviously its too big. So I split them in half and riveted them together.

Good Work! It looks good! Now, the question is; Do you have a setup station to go with it???

DOMOisCOOL;

Looks pretty cool. As long as it doesn't flex it should work fine.

I am using a 1/4" piece of Tempered Glass (rescued from our old Entertainment Center), with some 1/4" closed cell Foam on the bottom side for protection. Flat, true and basicly free .

press the X button (Stop) on your browser to make it stop switching pictures.

Anyways, that's a really cool set up board!
