It’s skateboard time again. upcycleDZINE has posted quite a few remarkable upcycle designs made out of skateboards. After a lifetime of extensive use, these decks are ready to be discarded. Luckily there’s a way to recycle them, but there are also designers who make lamps, jewlery or furniture out of old skateboards.
Three sixty rotating table
Today upcycleDZINE publishes another piece of upcycle design furniture made out of skateboard. It’s a design that I’ve seen on the web a long time ago. Don’t know why it hasn’t been published yet on this blog, but glad to show it today.
This magnificent table is called Three Sixty Table, referring to the measurement of rotation in a skateboard trick and this table. It’s a creation by Studio Maurer Hendrichs, not sure if the studio still exists because I couldn’t find an active link. It’s a German company founded by designer Mario Hendrichs and producer Christopher Maurer. The table is actually based on the Lazy Susan concept: turntables or rotating trays that rotate 360 degrees so that things are never out of reach.
The glass plate is supported by skateboard trucks mounted on German Oak. The glass is quite heavy because otherwise the wheels wouldn’t be working properly. Spinning can be done many times before one has to adjust the glass plate’s position, which is easy to do.

I’m not sure if you are a skater or skateboard lover like me, but this table should make you smile. And that’s one of the great things about upcycle design, FUN! Looking at this kind of design makes you realise that there are so many unique ways to upcycle discarded objects or materials and thereby giving them a second life and other great function. And… added value.
If you’re inspired by this design and thinking about trying to built it yourself, well your in luck. On fantastic website instructibles.com I’ve found an excellent DIY tutorial.
