So there’s a DIY article about making a ceiling fan out of skateboards. Nothing really to it besides, you know, drilling holes in skateboards and replacing existing blades. Seems like it would be awfully heavy. It’s not a new concept actually. There have been commercially available skateboard fans for a few years. So long that The X Board ceiling fan from Hunter Fans has already been discontinued. You can still get their model with mini surfboard shaped blades. You can also get a Radical Fan from a company that apparently decorates fan blades and resells them.
– Thanks to Charles Glover for the tip.
The discontinued Hunter X-Board.
Note to market research: Parent are unlikely to buy home appliances decorated with fake blood.
And now the Radical fan. This is not an officially licensed product. Licensed products were used as decorations.
There a re lot of handmade fan pulls for chains out there on the interwebs, but here’s one that someone actually had manufactured.
