Fingerboard Ramps Soon!

Prowood Fingerboards will soon be offering fingerboard ramps and obstacles soon!

We have been working very hard to develop the best designs with superior craftsmanship so that once again we will be able to offer hand crafted, USA made, BEAUTIFUL wooden fingerboard ramps and obstacles.  It has been a long and difficult journey but we insist on only the best products for our customers so I know it will be worth the wait!

As you know, I have had a life long love of beautiful woods and with my skateboarding kids, making fingerboards was a natural next step for me!  Our family created Prowood Fingerboards in 2008 and since that time we have never stopped to look back.  We do our best, every, single day to offer you top notch products at reasonable prices.  We think our new ramps and obstacles will not be an exception to that rule.

We know that using ramps and obstacles, our friends can spend hours practicing tricks and enjoying their hand crafted Prowood fingerboards.  Do you want to do a 180 on the mini half pipe?  Yep, you can do that – and if you don’t know how, you can practice until you do!  Like to grind?  Most of our new products will have aluminum ledges that will be perfect to allow you to perfect your style! You are going to love our new fingerboard ramps and obstacles!

Lastly, we know we couldn’t do all this, as we do, each and every day, without the support of our great friends – YOU!  Thank you so much for letting me do what I love.

For now, check out this pic of our newest samples, freshly created in the workshop! In the future, you will find (maybe in early October?) at our webstore:  www.prowoodfingerboards.com.   Thanks!

Working on Deeper Concave Fingerboard

Well, I’ve got a little time to work on a new fingerboard mold, so I am trying to develop a deeper concave board. I finally have some finished boards to show you and will post pictures below. What do you think?

Right now, this board is 100mm long. Our team has suggested to make it a bit shorter, but that seems too much like my Extreme Mold..

So, tell me what you think!

Also, I’d love your suggestions for a name!
Thanks bunches-
Jim
