How to Make a Proper American Skateboard

Los Angeles-Clip of the Week

From the craftsman behind District Millworks — a Downtown LA mill house specializing in custom-made, reclaimed furniture and cabinetry — comes District Skates, fabricators of hand-made, eco-friendly skateboards.

Like most everything that used to be made here, in America, skateboard production has been shipped oversees. These craftsmen aren't just reclaiming wood, but a piece of American pride.

Below, the Australian-LA based Monster Children Magazine profiles their DTLA workshop.
