Every day, thousands of skaters in Europe produce large quantities of wood waste that we decided to collect and creatively use following our passion. Canadian Maple, which boards are made of, is a material that has a lot of aesthetic and utilitarian value. Inspired by this fact, we created BoardThing - handmade goods from discarded skateboards.

Skateboarding + Recycling + Design = BoardThing

We are a group of friends bonded with art, recycling and skateboard culture who are inspired by the potential of processing raw materials commonly regarded as waste. Not many people outside of the culture of skateboarding realizes that the life of the skateboards in professional use is quite short (sometimes it might be only a few weeks). Every day, thousands of skaters in Europe produce large quantities of wood waste that we decided to collect and creatively use following our passion. Canadian Maple, which boards are made of, is a material that has a lot of aesthetic and utilitarian value. Inspired by this fact, we created BoardThing - handmade products from discarded skateboards.

Currently we are working in the area of several projects to support and promote our ideas, which you will hear about soon. We would like to invite you to cooperation and common popularization of the idea of both recycling and skateboarding. We want to combine the three modes - art, recycling and skateboard culture to spread, in our opinion, important value and provide a valuable product.

OUR IDEAS & VALUES

- popularization of ecological lifestyle and the 3 R's philosophy: reduce, reuse, recycle

- promotion of recycled art & skateboarding

- creation of sustainable design

- support for tree-planting organizations

Additional policies and FAQs
WHAT KIND OF WOOD ARE THE ITEMS MADE OF?

It's canadian maple, recycled from discarded skateboards.

HOW TO CARE ABOUT MY RING?

Maple wood is known not only for beauty, but also for strength and durability. However, since it is entirely an organic material, some care and maintenance is essential and required to ensure that your ring lasts for many years.

Your ring is waterproof as long as the finish is maintained. To be on the safe side, we recommend that you remove your ring prior to any prolonged water exposure, such as swimming, showering, washing the dishes, etc.

Avoid exposing your ring to harsh chemicals and solvents, such as antibacterial wipes, soaps, sprays, cleaners, perfumes, mosquito repellents, sunscreens, hair products or products containing isopropyl alcohol. Hand sanitizer should not be used while wearing your ring, as it contains solvents that will eat away at the finish.

Abrasives, such as sandpaper should also be avoided. Always remove your ring prior to operating heavy machinery, lifting weights, or anything else that might put excessive force on the ring. Any activities that could potentially damage the protective finish, such as weight lifting or rock climbing, should be done without the ring on your finger (this is true for all types of rings). Remember that if the ring comes into contact with any surface or object that is harder than the ring, it will always cause some scratches or damage.

Do not wear your ring in rubber gloves or in conditions where it is subjected to constant moisture.

The finish protects your ring from ultraviolet light and rapid changes in temperature. This being said, don’t leave your ring on a car dash or windowsill or anywhere it will be subject to temperature extremes.

When the finish on your ring shows wear, it can easily be touched up or completely refinished. Please be sure to tend to any abrasions right away or the wood may absorb moisture and damage the ring.

When the wood looks a bit dry, you can wipe it with some olive or almond oil. That will look after the wood and bring back some of the rich colours. Please note that wood will darken in colour over time, especially after oil treatments.

The rarely used jewellery should be stored in a dark place with limited oxygen access eg in a clean cloth bag.

HOW TO GET THE CORRECT RING SIZE?

It’s the best way to check your ring size in jewelry shop. After that your size is correct for sure. We just need UK, US, mm or any other size.
Here you can check your size: www.ringsizes.co

ISN'T IT SKIN IRRITATING?

No. Skateboard glues used by major manufacturers are a non-toxic waterbased glue. Our rings are impregnated with the special waterproof cover which is neutral to skin.

WHAT KIND OF SILVER DO YOU USE ?

We use sturdy 925 silver to produce our jewelry products. This is the purest kind of silver alloy to make jewelry.

HOW DO YOU COLLECT SKATEBOARDS?

First of all, we are skateboarders. Second, we collect decks from skateboarders community, shops, skateparks and skaters from all around Europe.

WHAT IS 5 YEAR WARRANTY ?

Every ring has 5 years warranty for damages not caused by the user. The warranty doesn’t include bruises, scrapes and other mechanical breaks. If you have any problems with your ring please contact us.

DO YOU SHIP WORLDWIDE?

Sure we do! It takes 5-15 days for shipping everywhere.
