For years, the guys at Deckstool have been salvaging broken skateboards and crafting them into their funky, yet clean-lined benches, stools, and tables. Over that time they have recycled tons of skateboards, but have also collected many smaller pieces that could not be used for furniture. This surplus of colorful, recycled skateboard scrap and the need to do something productive with it served as the push to launch their new line of graphic-inspired recycled skateboard clocks and wall decor.
The team aims at producing recycled skateboard wall clocks as well as other functional, skate and street art inspired home goods for your walls. Kind of ironically, the first new product at the Skateclock site is not a clock, but the SkateHook wall hook. Cut to look like the end of a skateboard, it has a pop-up skateboard truck that acts as a double-headed hook. A few hung in a row can be used for coats or towels. Great in the entryway to catch book bags or gear. The SkateHook can even be used as a charging spot for your phone or smaller tablet devices.
