Extreme sports became more and more searched by young people. Sports like: bungee- jumping, rafting or surfing are extremely appreciated by them.

One of the most popular extreme sports is skateboarding. It is a sport that can be practiced anywhere in the world and skate- parks became more and more numerous.Taylor Hamilton had the marvelous idea of reusing the used skateboards by transforming them into bookshelves. It is a simple method of building a bookcase. The only thing we need there are some used skateboards and a little imagination.

Usually the young people who practice extreme sports are more independent, so that a bookcase made of skateboards which is a little more nonconformist, is exactly what they would like to have in their own bedroom. They will also definitely impress their friends with this kind of bookcase.

There are skateboards for kids which have printed cartoons on them. Although they might be used they can easily become bookshelves for a bookcase designed by Taylor Hamilton. Definitely the way it is designed and the cartoons printed on it will bring a joyful touch in their rooms.Besides the books, on the shelves some other objects can be sit that are useful for the person who would like to build such a bookcase.
