When we were kids, we loved to check our toy’s motors, machines, and cells to know how they work. If this tech germ is still in your mind, asking you to create something out of those machines you unbolted and checked a few days ago. Let’s make a hoverboard at home then. It’s totally normal if you are low on budget to buy a brand new hoverboard or you just want to experience a homemade hoverboard. I am here to share all the possible ways of how to make a hoverboard in easy steps at home.
How to make a hoverboard with household items
It’s a mind game but a very interesting experiment you can do to make a hoverboard at home. The first thing you need is material. Here is a list of all the things you need to pick up from your home to make a good electric hoverboard with household items.
Material you need
- 24V motors x2 of 120watts at least (scooter motor)
- A 12AMP battery with a 12V power at least.
- piece of strong wood 2″x2″
- A sheet of plywood 1/4 inch
- Half-inch sheet of good quality plywood for the base
- White glue and screws for fixing the material
- Take 1″ rubber wheels x2 from any children bike
Here is the process of how to make a hoverboard faster at home. After collecting all the material it is time to attach and fix it. Remove all the unnecessary screws and bolts from the material. Take that sheet of plywood and cut it to the shape of the hoverboard’s frame. Cut it out according to your feet size and leave some extra space for battery placement as well. Now take the wood pieces and cut them into thin pieces. Drill holes on it for wheel bolts according to the wheel axles. Fill every cut with a good-quality epoxy resin (adhesive). Fix the screws with wheels. After the adhesive is dried enough, fix the axle and wheel with screws. Also, use epoxy if you need it.
Now move towards the bottom of the hoverboard. Attach the wooden pieces with the frame. It’s time to fix the motor. Use good quality industrial tape for this purpose. Make a motor bracket with wooden frames. Place both motors close to each wheel. Now wire the motors with wheels. Make sure they are in a sturdy position. After completing all these essential steps. Here comes the last step. Attach the top plywood layer with screws. And you are done. Test it out after some time.

How to make a hoverboard out of magnets?
- 4 good quality magnets
- Ordinary tape
- A ruler
First, draw a sketch of a hoverboard on cardboard and cut it out. Now take 2 strong magnets and place them below the cardboard structure at 10cm of distance between them. Take a piece of cardboard again, this time it is longer than before. Tape 2 magnets with a 10 cm distance between each of them. For better levitation, tape more magnets and place them in a way so that they repel. Balance the hoverboard by keeping the cardboard on a platform. The magnetic hoverboard is ready to float. How to make an anti-gravity hoverboard follows the same procedure as well.
