Build your own skateboard and other bent wood projects

Roarockit offers the tools and the materials to make it possible for everyone, from beginner to expert to design and to build high quality custom skateboards and other bent wood projects.

How it works ?

- Glue up your layers of veneer

- Place your glued veneers onto your pre-shaped mold, or a mold that you have shaped yourself beforehand

- Slip your stacked project into the Thin Air Press

- Place the breather netting under the valve and across your project

- Close the Thin Air Press, making it 100 % air tight, by using the sealing tape at the opening of the bag

- Extract the air from the Thin Air Press, using the manual vacuum pump - Leave your project in the TAP for a minimum of 8 hours

- Once your project has dried, open the press and take out your poject

- Finish off your project using a scrapper and sanding paper

- Now all that is left to do, is varnish it and apply your graphics and there you have it !

The Thin Air Press and how it works

The Thin Air Press kit is an inexpensive introduction to the process and can be used for a variety of different projects from laminating skateboard decks, building composite wings for model aircraft, musical instruments or building furniture wood components for woodworkers.

The TAP vacuum bag, is made of sturdy 20 mil vinyl that will not leak. Using this system there is no need to keep an electrical pump running continuously until your vacuum project is set. The hand vacuum pump connects to a one-way valve on the TAP bag. Our pump produces more than enough pressure for most forms of laminating, easily exerting 15 psi of pressure onto your project. This is equal to most electric vacuum pumps used for composite or veneer vacuuming.

All components of this kit are reusable many times over and epoxy and PVA glues will not stick to the bag.
