The circle of life. It’s not just for Simba and Elton John, it’s also for… skateboards. Yes, Houston-based Side Project Skateboards is proving that old adage is true, taking recovered hardwoods and turning them into decks with more than a dash of style.

Side Project is offering a limited edition of handmade vintage-inspired styles, with each skateboard being handmade from start to finish by one single craftsman. Well, the guy could be married, but the point is there’s only one man making your board for you. Everything is cut, shaped, and finished by hand, so if you notice a slight difference from board to board, that’s not a flaw, that’s a sign of painstaking dedication. Pricing starts at $435.
