Upcycling New Skateboards from Broken Skateboards

See also

We recently published an article about the thief in Florida who escaped with a flat-screen TV while making use of his skateboard. We are certainly not encouraging anyone else to make use of a skateboard while committing a crime, but now we have a video on 'Upcycling New Skateboards from Broken Skateboards' which may be of use to some of our Nashville friends who are handy with tools and want to remake their skateboard rather than buy a new one. In the sports world of today, skateboarding is one of the coolest things we see, and we just cannot always figure out how the skateboarder keeps from falling and getting hurt.

We like to recycle old things into useful modern-day items and one of the things we recently heard of was to use an old ladder for many different uses, such as shelving, or a spot to hold plants, books or such. Now this video on using broken skateboards to fix up a new one may help us fix up a skateboard for some of our neighborhood friends in the Nashville community.

Check out the attached video and leave us a note and let us know how we can recycle other items to save some of that hard-earned money we don't have.
