Garl's Surfboard Adirondack Chair

A great friend of mine accidentally broke his brand new surfboard ($800 investment). I could tell he was very upset with the situation so I asked him if I could keep the board instead of him throwing it out. I decided to build him an Adirondack chair around the board in order to cheer him up! My Ryobi impact driver, drill, circular saw, jigsaw, and sander helped make this project happen!

  • Great homage to the board! I can see a line up of them watching the morning break.

    • Thank you! I have 2 older boards collecting dust in my garage and am considering building chairs out of them as well!

  • Awesome work! What a great idea for giving a broken board a 2nd chance! Your buddy must have been really excited about this gift.

    • Thank you! He was completely blown away and had no idea I had this planned for his board. He immediately came over to pick it up and joked that he would have to break a second board so that I could build him another one! Very happy that my project eased his pain!

  • Nice Job and clever use of that broken surfboard!! Looks very cool and a very neat one of a kind for your friend. I bet he loves the chair!
