Detailed designs to build your own bench using your trashed boards
Just can't bring yourself to toss a trashed deck? Don’t! Build your own snowboard bench or table. This site offers you a downloadable set of plans; easy-to-follow instructions along with photos and illustrations. Not only can you avoid wasting time and money with this set of plans but we also list the exact materials and tools you need. The designs provide for sturdy, good-looking design for a single board bench or double board bench. This single set of instructions include several basic models which we named; The Double Wide, The Mini Me, The Standard, The Recliner and others.
A bench is a great way to make use of ruined decks – good for your patio or yard – and keeps your beloved snowboard out of the local landfill. Snowboard enthusiasts have also used these same plans to make benches as gifts or for retail. In addition to using your own snowboard decks, many rental shops and resorts simple throw out their old or ruined boards on an ongoing basis (for instance, all the boards on the left were being tossed by a local rental outlet – no joke). The bench materials (not including the snowboard deck) for any one of the designs should not exceed $30 at your local hardware store. The purchase of these instructions will hopefully enable you to hone in on the right design for your board(s) – no ‘trial and error’ technique.
These instructions work for boards of any size - tiny to large!
