Did you know the top, flat surface of a skateboard is called a “deck?” Makes sense, but who knew? If you’re a skater, forgive my ignorance (I can hear the “Dude, come on!” as I type).

As I’ve learned today, broken skateboard decks are still useful (there is life after the wheels fall off). The people behind deckstool.com are busy building furniture out of the broken parts — and do you know what I call that?

Totally radical.

    The designer was pretty creative to think of something like this. It's actually a good way to recycle skateboards that are not being used anymore. For someone who has a lot of aggressive skates, this is a good business to have. You could also make tables and chairs out of skateboards.

    These are interesting ideas coming from a very creative furniture designer. He might accidentally thought of the fact that these boards can be transformed into another creature. Creating another design made inroller boots and some skate paraphernalia would be another cool idea.
