…It’s Things Thursday: Deckstool?

Deckstool

Jason Podlaski takes broken skateboard decks and turns them into unique pieces of furniture called Deckstools.

Each Deckstool is made from recycled skateboard parts, and “the scrapes and scars on the decks create beautiful patterns over the original skateboard artwork”.

The stools are even assembled using original skateboard trucks for hardware, giving them an extra bit of authenticity and leaving nothing to waste. Plus, since each one is made using a used and broken board, each one is a unique and limited edition run of one.

…Popdeck is great for custom skateboards?

Popdeck

Popdeck is “the first design community just for skateboarders”.

Like Threadless, Popdeck lets designers upload their designs to the site, and then users can vote on them to select the winners. Unlike Threadless, winning designs end up becoming limited edition skateboard decks that probably aren’t as comfortable to wear as a t-shirt would be.

Each deck is hand numbered, and if you’re going to buy a board anyways, I don’t see why you wouldn’t want one that looks good and isn’t owned by every kid on the block.

…Skateboarders need band-aids?

Band-aid Skateboard

Here’s a cool idea for a skateboard deck that comes with its own irony: A giant band-aid. This hand painted creation is almost more suitable for wall art than skating. Either way, I like it.
