An eco-responsible wood…
Our products are made with locally sourced Camphor Laurel wood, recycled timber and black wattle native trees. The camphor Laurel tree is an “invasive” tree species that prevents native trees to grow. The camphor features beautiful and unique cross-section patterns and is usually used for fragrance due to its specific earthy smell. The Black Wattle is a native species, and we only use large branches that would have fallen off the trees. We are not cutting trees to make skateboards! Our boards are handcrafted designed & handmade assembled in Byron Bay Australia.
Our wood is cut, handshaped, stored and supplied from a local Byron Bay hinterland private property. Our designs, board engraving assembly and finishing are done from our workshop in Suffolk Park.
…cut and craft locally…
The camphor wood comes from a local private property in Nimbin, the Byron Bay hinterland. It is stored in a large shed ready to be cut for specific applications: chopping boards, furniture, and skateboard decks.
The boards are crafted to a specific shape, length, and width corresponding to our designs or any specific customer’s requirement. Three standard sizes are available: the 55 cm. Short board perfect for the kids and easy to carry, the 70 cm. and 85 cm. Longboard, ideal for cruising around.
…sanded & stained in Byron…
We use 200g grain to remove any rough imperfections coming from the mill and fine-tune the sanding with a lighter 100g to have a smooth finish prior to staining as needed.
The stain depends on the type of wood garin and becomes appearant using grape seed oil.
…customized just for you.
We can laser engraved the boards with a name, pattern, logo or drawing on it. Customers can email us a graphic or use the wheels’n boards website online tools to come up with a design. The graphic is formatted and imported in a laser engraving software, adjusted (shadows, exposure, colors, and light) and aligned with the board shape.
Prior to engraving, we need to perform side tests to adjust the laser power depending on the design complexity or wood porosity. Engraving is done line by line and can engrave fine details up to 10 microns accuracy.
Delivered in a recycled packaging.
Our boards are packaged in cardboards and posted in reusable compost bags.
