Deep in the alleys of Brooklyn (Greenpoint to be exact), a box truck is parked. Inside of the box truck, DL Skateboards makes custom, handmade skate decks "one hundred percent hand-sawn from a 3/4" solid oak slab. Then sanded, drilled, painted, and gripped"... As handmade as it gets! CoolHunting documents the founders Lauren Andino and Derek Mabra in their studio/box truck shaping decks before their great move to California.
