Skate Made Wood Supply is the work of Tom Tate Contreras.  Each product is hand made in Huntington Beach, California.

I started skateboarding in 1986 at the ripe age of 12 in the suburbs of Washington DC, and I still haven't stopped. Even after having two metal plates in one arm and one in the other I still can't stop. At almost forty years old I still try to push myself to learn new tricks. I am a skateboarder first and everything else second. I've based my life around skateboarding where i've been a graphic designer for skateboard companies for many years. You can see my work at http://aclockwisewitness.squarespace.com.  I've created many things for many companies and now I want to create something for myself and for other skateboarders. This is why I started to take old skateboards and make something new out of them. I love everything about skateboards, especially ones that have been loved and skated hard. I love when there are scratches across an amazing graphic. To me it gives the art a purpose. This is why I try to show as much of the scratched up graphic as possible. When I see the wood veneers and the colors it just makes me happy. I hope it makes you happy too. Thanks for visiting my site.
