Upcycling Update

1   2  

For my upcycling project I plan on doing something with skis/snowboards. I love skiing and although it was not the primary reason for my attendance at CU, it is definitely a plus. Myself and my roommates have always been talking about making a used ski/snowboard bench and I figure this is the perfect time to make the ideas in those conversations a reality.

The benches are usually composed of only wood and skis/snowboard but are sometimes composed of other materials, as seen above in picture 2. Skis are not only colorful and represent happy times in my life, but they are also structurally sturdy, so they are a perfect piece of recycled material to make into a bench.

  • I really like snowboarding myself. This would be a long project to attempt at, but it would be worth it in the end. A very expensive upcycle project indeed.
