Repurpose Wednesday

This video is super rad! Shwood uses old skate decks to create sunglasses.
This is a great example of how we can take old materials and make new things that are just as interesting, unique, and nice looking. We like the idea of re-purposing used materials to create a totally new design. Sweet!
