Skateboards will have their share of reaching the stage of their usefulness but that doesn’t mean that they will automatically head towards the local junkyard. The materials can certainly be of good use still, something that Sk8shades does as they reuse old skateboard materials and make them prime ones of trendy new shades.
Not only does it inspire new recycling ideas, the new shades are infused with the soul of an actual skateboarder too.
After stripping the tape from the skateboard deck, the boards are laminated while the blocks are sliced into veneers and sanded smoothly. They are then shaped into frames and lens, with the skateboard’s nose and nail crafted the lush pieces. They are capped with sanding before the final hinges and rivets are glued for the final product.
