Skateboard Stool


From the website:



This sturdy, compact seat features a creative reuse of of roughed-up skateboards.


Broken boards are byproducts of skate culture and decks are usually destined for the landfill once they're cracked. 

Inspired by the consistent way many skateboards were busted, artist Jason Podlaski collects shattered skateboards from skateshops and skateparks in the U.S. 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. 

Every deckstool is meticulously built, reinforced and finished by skilled craftsmen in Pennsylvania.

Materials: Steel, recycled broken skateboards, skateboard truck.

12"L x 13"W x 18"H.

Due to the variable nature of recycled skateboard decks, every stool is unique and will feature a one-of-a-kind combination of scarred skateboard art, scrapes/bangs, colors and graffiti. The decks for each stool are carefully selected by hand in order to be complementary, much like a woodworker would select lumber for a piece of fine furniture. Despite the fact that every stool 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 stool.

Not for big American-style butts. Neither is the Dry Chair from today's 9:01 AM post. Stools and chairs these days need to come with weight limits, like ladders.

A long time ago, I knew someone whose apartment was furnished, in every room (and not due to lack of coin), with little wire ice-cream-parlor chairs. At my all-time skinniest I never once sat down in her place.

Now THIS is a chair:
