About ProwoodJim

I am the owner and creator of Prowood Fingerboards. I strive to make high quality, hand crafted, custom fingerboards and accessories to sell at our online store, www.ProwoodFingerboards.com since 2008! We are proud to say all of our fingerboards are made in Palmyra, Indiana USA!

Obstacles and Ramps

We are counting down the days until we can unveil our new obstacles from Prowoodfingerboards. I will have 5 in the next week or so and even more after that. I will be offering all of the great fingerboard ramps and obstacles on the official Prowoodfingerboards web page and I encourage you to check for the updates next week.

Do you love to fingerboard? Do you have a favorite obstacle? Let me know so I am sure to make just what you need!

New Graphics and Sale!

Hello friends!
I wanted to let you know that as we are starting to gear up for the upcoming season, we have 6 new board graphics available and now on sale on our website, www.ProwoodFingerboards.com. The graphics have come to us from a variety of designers and we are truly having a difficult time in choosing our favorites! If you decide, shoot us an email and let us know what you
think!

In addition, to make room for these awesome fingerboards, we are now offering several of our fingerboards at super low prices. We will be retiring several designs, including ‘Caution‘, ‘Colors‘, ‘Rastadelic‘, ‘Fickle‘ , ‘Wild Rose‘ and ‘Close‘. You will find super great prices on the last of these boards, right on the front page of our website! Check them out while supplies last!

Finally, we have 3 rough samples of our new obstacles in the works, including a new half pipe and a box. We are hoping to have these in stock in our stores in September as long as production runs smoothly. As always, we will be offering great quality products at reasonable prices – all made in the USA. Watch for these soon!

Ramps and Obstacles

I am awaiting the arrival of several ramps and obstacles from some local friends who have agreed to help me out with this project.  Since I spend all my time hand-crafting custom fingerboards, I really don’t have time to make obstacles too.  However, I have managed to locate an amazing craftsman and I cannot wait to see what they bring to us.

Here is a small sample of what we used to offer.  I’d be curious to see what your thoughts are?  What fingerboard ramps and fingerboard obstacles should we offer?

Another Graphic Option?

Here is a pic of another fingerboard graphic that I have been working on.  Thoughts?

kissOff

I like the design here, because it looks almost like camo.  I tried a pink and red version with ‘Kiss Me’ first and no one had anything good to say about it.  So, I decided to go for a different genre and made it more defiant.  The colors are sick and I think it would look great on a fingerboard.  If I were back in school, I think I would get this one, just to hope my teacher would try to take it away..   but then again, I was always a trouble maker back then.

Just like all of our fingerboards, this would be hand crafted, right here in Indiana.  We make our fingerboards using 5 plies of wood – making sure we alternate the plies with cross cut wood to make our boards super strong, with great pop.  From my experience, wooden fingerboards will give you a much better ride, with greater control, just like riding a full size skateboard.

If offered, the board would be available in all 3 of our shapes – Classic, Extreme, and Venti.  Sizes 29mm, 30mm and 32mm.

Fingerboard Graphic- Blue Hair

Here is a pic of a fingerboard graphic that I have been working on.  Thoughts?blueHair

I like this because it reminds me a lot of my niece, who just happened to color her hair the same exact color.  I love the colors and I think it would look great on a fingerboard.  Would it help me do better fingerboard tricks?  No clue, but it would be cool enough that I would have to try.

Updates – New Graphics and Ramps

Hello!

It has been a bit busy with trying to get a kiddo off to college, 2 others to start their school years here and another one moving off to Colorado. I’m still making boards, but also juggling a lot of other things.. and NOT (sadly) taking the time to update my posts here.

Our Team Captain, Jacob, has an awesome new Pro-Model board available. Check it out and let me know what you think. Sadly, our previous captain, Phillip, has finally retired as he is now working full time, going to school etc. Sometimes, life does get in the way of fingerboarding.

So, I’m back to focusing on the business and getting us prepped for the upcoming season. I’ve got a few new graphics I want to offer and I am getting ramp samples from some a local supplier in the next week. I will be super excited if the quality turns out as expected and my goal is to be able to start to offer ramps and obstacles on the site again, by September 1.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face
And the rain fall soft upon your fields
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the palm of his hand

An Irish blessing for all my friends!
