About the author

Marty Allen is a Boston-born, Brooklyn-based renegade crafter, puppet-maker, artist, writer, musician and liker of life. He makes all sorts of things. One thing that he is least proficient at is writing biographies in the third person. While he likes to talk about himself at length, in general said missives devolve into something or other about sandwiches. Visit his website at martystuff.com. The author is based in Brooklyn, New York.


Are you sat at your desk, bored out of your mind? Well get this cool kit and create your own fingerboard skatepark using some tape and some glue. Containing 15 different designs for quarter pipes, halfpipes, fun boxes, grind rails, and more, you can soon be creating some sick lines right there on your desktop. Every ramp comes with simple step-by-step instructions and uses readily available materials, meaning you could make a ramp out of just about anything. And many obstacles come with a template to make sure your ramps have perfectly smooth curves and angles, which means you’ll be busting out amazing tricks at your desk in no time. And the best thing about the book is it comes with your very own fingerboard and the book packaging can be turned into a handy first fun box to get you practicing tricks straight away. You will also get some card to start building ramps with. So what are waiting for... get building!
