The beautiful thing about Maker Faire is that you often get a sneak peek into designs folks have in the works but that are not available yet. One of my favorite prototypes I saw was the Treehouse Designs Skate Deck Chair. From their site, the chair is a “prototype for a furniture line in kit form constructed of reclaimed skateboard decks and CNC-milled color fin ply.” I, for one, can’t wait until this kit is available because I have 6 old decks waiting for a new life. You also gotta love that the design team on this project is father/daughter duo Lance and Amanda Glover, coming up with a styley and functional use for Amanda’s old skate decks.

I'm a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. I was an editor on the first 40 volumes of MAKE, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. In particular, covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.
