Baked Roast | Handmade Skateboard Furniture

Baked Roast is a new brand that creates high quality, handmade skateboard furniture. Baked / Roast is an anagram for skateboard, in fact the team behind the brand are great skateboarding enthusiasts, so it comes at no surprise that their first products are inspired by the skateboarding scene, a couple of unique limited edition skateboard stools - "The Steel One” and "The Wood One”. "The Steel One” is the heavier of the two, the frame is handmade of high quality beechwood with a clear coat finish. It is lightweight, yet perfectly balanced and very stable. The screws and bolts were dyed to match the orange dyed layers of the deck. "The Wood One” is lighter and made entirely of high quality beechwood with a clearcoat finish. We shall definitely keep an eye on these guys, they have other skateboard inspired products lined up such as bookshelfs, speaker sets, chairs and swing sets.
