Forked drop-down longboard - OSB Prototype

I’m on vacations in a small Baltic town. However, there is no Baltic birch plywood available in stores :). So I’ve made a prototype with Kronospan OSB.

NOTE: I do not recommend this material for longboard building. It is 3-4 times weaker than birch plywood. It’s suitable for prototyping only.

However, the prototype made with such material shows me that the design concept is not bad. E.g. it's impossible to make a drop-through longboard using the OSB panels.
