#eWeekly: Guitars from Recycled Skateboard Decks!

E-Town - Fri, 08/14/2015 - 03:58

via ThisIsCollosal.com

Nick Pourfard is 22-year-old artist, musician, and skateboarder currently combing his multiple talents into one package: guitars built from reclaimed skateboard decks. The San Francisco-based industrial design student taught himself woodworking to tackle the project which he branded as Prisma Guitars. Each instrument is 100% handmade and composed of skateboards that have been used or broken.

Recently, Pourfard had the honor of building a piece for Steve Harris of Iron Maiden. Pourfard explains, “I took every detail of his playing style and aesthetic into consideration. The bass has an off-white painted alder back with skate top featuring colors as close to West Ham as possible. I laser cut a custom mirror pickguard and bound the whole body in black and white to pay homage to his classic original bass.”

You can donate your own used or broken skateboards to Pourfard before they make their way into a landfill here. (via fubiz)

U.S. farmer incomes, cropland values projected to fall more

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 08/14/2015 - 03:42
The U.S. farm economy faces more pressure this quarter from low grain prices and stubbornly high costs, with incomes down across much of the country's most important cropland, quarterly reports from Federal Reserve banks show. Second-quarter surveys released on Thursday by the Federal Reserve banks of Kansas City and St. Louis also suggested the value of cropland would decline further in the third quarter. The rural economy has been hit by recent bumper harvests that have pushed grain prices to five-year lows and by a strong dollar that has hurt exports.
