How to Make a Cruiser Board Press

June 14, 2016

Description:

In the next month or so I’m going to be building another cruiser board. I want to use a press for that video so I made one ahead of time this week. For this project, I used 2 sheets of 3/4″ plywood that was 2’x4′ and about 12- 1/2″ bolts that are 3 1/2″ long. I also used about 24 washers and 12 nuts as well as some packaging tape to keep the press from being glued shut. I started by ripping my plywood into 2- 11″ strips and cut one of them down to 35″ long. I used the other 11″ strip and cut a 25° bevel on one end. I cut the other end to size later in the video. From here, I took my last sheet of 2’x4′ plywood and cut a 9″ strip. I rough cut 2 pieces to 7″ and and 4 more pieces to 5″. I added 25° bevels to one side of those pieces and cut them to size after I stacked them all in place. From there, I drilled 12 1/2″ holes in the press and taped the inside of the press with packaging tape to prevent any glue squeeze out. If you’d like to make this yourself, I’ve included a 3D model that you can download for free!
