The Handmade Skateboard: design and build a board from scratch

I have instructions for making a longboard in my father-daughter DIY book, Maker Dad. This book, The Handmade Skateboard by Matt Berger, is a deep dive into making skateboards. It has step-by-step instructions for designing and building several different kinds of boards, and I love that he included his two young daughters in the book. It's loaded with tips about making skateboards that could apply to many different kinds of woodworking projects.
