FunkinFunction Skateboards

Since I'm a dad, let me show you what I would love for Father's Day... A green-interested furniture designer, Daniel Moyer said in a recent Brooklyn Designs (an annual made-in-Brooklyn design show) interview, "I use small-mill, locally harvested hardwood for my furniture fabrication (no energy wasted in long haul transportation, fancy processing and kiln-drying). Making skateboards from the scrap is even greener, and using other makers' scrap is the greenest. Longboard skateboarding as a transportation alternative is just plain groovy." As a former (or is it recovering?) skateboarder, I wholeheartedly agree. Sure, $500 for a skateboard is a bit much, but let me ask you: How cool would it be to roll around on a skateboard made from hickory, oak, and walnut? How much would this kick up the cool factor in your place?
