Not quite recycled skateboard furniture - Skurniture

Making furniture out of skateboards is nothing new. These guys are trying to capitalize on the art-chic trend in skateboarding culture. The company is called Skurniture and right now they have a very simple bench available. It has a lot fewer parts than an actual skateboard, but at $129 it costs a bit more. You can even by the (overpriced) pieces separately.

The legs on these benches are kind of cool, but simple. At $70 they seem expensive even for a pair. You can buy the deck as a stand alone too. That’s got to be cheap right? Apparently it is expensive to do less finishing work (square edges, no graphics) and countersink the mounting hardware holes because the deck a lone will cost you $60.

Don’t want to be taken for a kook cause you shelled out for one of these benches? Check out the picture of Tony Alva getting his skurniture on at an art show. We kid, we kid. I actually think it’s a cool idea, just overpriced is all. Cut the leg price in half and I may order.
