    1. I was thinking about this too. They use a vacuum cleaner to suck the air out and come in all sizes.

  1. “Art makes the world a better place, let’s make more.” Love this!
    You always make creativity such a joy to watch and it inspires me to be better tomorrow than I am today. Thanks for sharing

  2. Dear Make, another great and informative video. I really enjoy the channel and am a new listener to the podcast. 👍 You’ve helped reinspire my maker mentality. 🙏

  3. I live right down the street from foam factory. we get all our mattress toppers made there.sweet

  4. I love Foam Factory. I’ve used them to get super high-quality foam for my cushions. They also have something called “pick and pull” foam, something like that, I used to organize my workbench drawers…not quite as nice as some of the other drawer organizing foam but the end result is similar and much cheaper.

  5. New tag line!?! Who’s going to tell me to “…stay pationate and make something?” Seriously though, Keep evolving! We found you, Bob, Jimmy, and the others for a skill or technique and stay because of your personalities and creative sides.

  6. I will fear no art~!~ As a maker, an ex-skater(sk8brds)and now a onewheeler, so much goodness just happened for me in this video. I’ve been wanting to do vacuum bagging for awhile now. I already do a bunch of cold forming bent laminates for work, now I want to play with decks. Thank you~!~

  7. TRUTH: Of all the woodworking Youtube channels I follow, yours is defintiely in the top 5, partly due to your presentation style, partly due to your jokes (that are kinda my style too), and partly due to the types of project you do (some I do, some are just interesting and I’d like to do, but have no reason to do). Mind you, I’m primarily a woodturner so I have my top 5 woodturning channels that are separate from this list. BUT, you are top 5 (if not the top of the list) of the non-turning channels.

  8. Love how you mix the tutorial and an art project at different levels for this one. Perfect delivery. Very much enjoyed it. And I haven’t even skateboarded in about 25 years

  9. Thanks for the idea of the vacuum bag !
    It gave me ideas too… You surely have compressed air in you workshop ? Get a venturi module ! (about 30-50$ or find one on a scraped machine)
    There are rubber strips to make vacuum bags, even huge ones, and also for the fitting, rubber seals. (put sealing tape and hot glue away)
    Last one, there are big vacuum bags for clothes and thick blankets (duvet ?) which work with a simple vacuum cleaner. (worth the test)

  10. I love how this idea evolved from a story about making skate decks to one about different ways to use a new tool. The deck turned out gorgeous, but I really learned a lot about using the vacuum press. I think I need a new tool now. Thanks for sharing!

  11. FANTASTIC work, Dave! The skates look amazing! 😃
    Stay safe there with your family! 🖖😊

  12. I love your channel so much! You always inspire me to try things that are outside of my skill set and I love learning new skills. Thank you!

  13. Bro, that is so weird, I have a friend Joann that had a craft store too 😂! Cool vid, thanks for the great info and fun delivery.
