An avid skateboarder often experiences the woes of a broken deck when a trick goes awry. Thanks to Deckstool, the remains of an unrideable skateboard is recycled into furniture harvested from skate shops and skate parks across the U.S.A.he project was launched by Pennsylvania based artist Jason Podlaski when his brother handed him a stack of his old, broken skateboard decks.

Podlaski explains:

Looking at the decks, I was inspired by the consistent way they were broken, about 75% of them were broken at the truck and 25% were broken in half. The longer, more abundant “broken at the truck” decks seemed to be natural legs for the design and the smaller, less plentiful “broken in half” decks looked like they would make a good seat. After playing with these basic components for a while and incorporating an old skateboard truck to tie the pieces together, a mutant, proto-deckstool appeared.
