I have 3 or 4 broken boards laying around that I want to somehow convert into a chair. They are all cracked across the middle, so I want to cut them so they have clean edges and I can figure out something to do with them.

What kind of saw can you use to cut through a wakeboard. The foam cores are no problem, but the outer shells are extremely hard. Can I use a circular saw with the right blade or will it splinter? Is a hacksaw the best option? Thanks

Circular saw should be fine. Just use some blue masking tape on the area u r Cutting. that should stop it from splintering too bad.

Thanks for the recommendations-I ended up just winging it. I taped the area then tried a hacksaw and a normal wood circular saw blade. Both worked just fine and cut through it like butter. I have the pieces cut now, just need to buy some wood and brackets and figure out some way to make a frame.

Let us know how it comes out. I've been thinking aderondak chair would be better than a bench but they seem way more difficult to build.

I just picked up a 2nd board to cut up, so I'll be making 2 at once. Wanted to wait until i moved into my lake place.

I just broke a slingshot board that can't be traded in for a warranty replacement and have been wondering what to do with it. I now have my answer. I've got a cousin that makes these chairs for their store I'll talk to him to see about getting the chair templates if anyone is interested.

I'd think a high speed jig saw with fine tooth blade would keep the splintering to a minimum.

Well coming up with a template is not our expertise. What do you think of the idea of us sending you the precut wood. I think that will be easier than us spending a month trying to make a template on the computer.

How much would it cost each chair you think? Thanks for the response back!

if you have some old ski's you could use them for the arm rests

They look great. Are they comfortable to sit in?

Oh yeah! They have enough lean/slant to them that theyre extremely comfortable. Deep/wide seat and the foot rest is detached so can be moved around. I'll end up painting them white most likely or maybe just stain or poly. Havent decided yet
