MorningWood Skateboards - Crafting new things from broken skateboards

About Us

Welcome to MorningWood Skateboards where craftsmanship meets creativity.
This one-man band woodshop business was founded by Matej Malenšek, combining over two decades of skateboarding and woodworking experience into creating unique and custom products. 

At MorningWood Skateboards, we’re all about giving old skateboards a second chance. These skateboards tell a story of their own, with scars and marks from countless tricks and adventures. Whether it’s a unique coffee table, a set of trophies, or a decorative bowl, you can trust that each product has been handcrafted with precision and care. 

By choosing MorningWood Skateboards, you’re not just purchasing a high-quality, one-of-a-kind product; you’re also directly supporting the dream of a skater and craftsman who is dedicated to pushing the boundaries of creativity and sustainability. 

Whether you’re a fellow skateboard enthusiast, an eco-conscious consumer, or someone who appreciates the beauty of handcrafted goods, MorningWood Skateboards has something special for you.
Thank you for considering MorningWood Skateboards as your choice for unique wooden creations.

The trophies consist of the pyramid base, which is made from broken skateboards, with a personalized engraving on a golden plate. On top of the base, a golden sphere with a star from black skateboard veneer, is attached.
