One man's trash is another man's leisure.

Relax at home after your daily grind. After years of kick flips and ollies, the pieces of broken skateboards have been 360'd into this extremely cool bench. Each bench is constructed with master craftsmanship and reinforced by craftsmen in Pennsylvania. All one-of-a-kind, each one is not only comfortable, but a work of art. This is one skateboard that will never test your balance.

Inspired by the consistent way many skateboards were busted, artist Jason Podlaski collects shattered skateboards from skateshops and skateparks in the US and Canada and turns both deck and truck into a hybrid, high-quality piece of furniture that's built tough. The scrapes and scars on the decks create a beautiful veneer of use over the original graphics. The result is a freewheeling seat that both hard-core design enthusiasts and street sports fanatics will flip (and 360) over.

It all began when Adam Podlaski approached his brother, Jason, and asked him to salvage the remains of what appeared to be several broken skateboards. Jason realized that not only could the pieces be fashioned into stools but that most skateboards tend to break in similar spots - at the truck or, simply, in half - lending themselves perfectly to legs and seats. Now, instead of being chucked into landfills and discarded, broken skateboards could have a second life as furniture. After all, with providing hours of fun and freedom to their owners, they deserved a more dignified retirement. With quality and authenticity in mind, Jason takes special care to preserve the scrapes and scars that make every board, and stool, unique.

Handmade Recycled Made in the USA
Made from
reclaimed steel, recycled skateboards, skateboard truck
Measurements
60" L X 14.5" W X 18.5" H
Notes
Clean with damp cloth.

Due to the variable nature of recycled skateboard decks, every bench is unique and will feature a one-of-a-kind combination of scarred skateboard art, scrapes/bangs, colors and graffiti. The decks for each bench are carefully selected by hand in order to be complimentary, much like a woodworker would select lumber for a piece of fine furniture. Despite the fact that every bench is unique, we have engineered our production process to insure all furniture meets our strict quality and dimensional specifications. We do produce every piece of furniture to be balanced as far as "quality" of skateboard art, colors, and graffiti included in each bench.
