Time to share!
I have decided to make my boards available to the public. I know they're not the cheapest, but they couldn't be - considering the amount of time, dedication, material and most of all love that's in every single one of them.

These little gems are intended as hybrids of art and functionality, the shapes and concaves closely resemble those of actual skateboards.
Each one is unique and customized, finalized solely by hand, with extreme care and much love.
Only the best of woods are chosen, no matter what the cost. Be it pressing, glueing, sanding or polishing - relentless attention to detail makes this what it is:

This is no mass production.
This is a labor of love.

You can check them out here: www.privatepressminiatures.bigcartel.com/

and stay up to date via facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/privatepressed

All boards are shipped from Hamburg, Germany as registered letter.
I will post images in the next post.

Feel free to ask me any questions and/or comment!

Lynn

Yes, they are very happy 
The only difference being that I have perfected the pressing and finalizing part as well as the choice of wood. But the shape and size has not changed happy

Thank you Amanda happy 

I don't really dare to see myself as a company though, I just like trying to do things my own way, experiment and discover.  I won't be able to do those things that real proper companies do such as attenting events, sponsoring etc as this could quickly become a full time job then.

But it's all about the process for me - taking all the time in the world to finalize a deck until I am 100% satisfied with it...it's just so rewarding and relaxing. And most importantly: so very different from the realities of a real full time day-job.

I guess making fingerboards is good for the soul flower
