The Skateboard

In July of 1976, my father, who was renowned in the area for his craftsmanship and woodworking, was contacted by a local business to manufacture 1,000 oak skateboards.  Short on funds, he asked his sister if he could borrow $500 in order to purchase the oak lumber needed to produce the order.  She loaned him the money and he was able to move forward with the job in his parent’s garage in Cranston, Rhode Island.  The first skateboard he made was given to my older sister when she was young and then passed on to me.  Though it is worn and damaged from its use as a childhood toy, it hangs today above the window in my office as a reminder of how Custom Design was started more than forty years ago.  It continually serves as a reminder of humble beginnings and of what can be achieved through hard work and dedication.

Custom glorifier watch box for Christophe Claret and StingHD

This box is a one of a kind as it features a custom cast solid silver skull plated with black platinum to match the StingHD patented skull (in this case a limited edition black diamond and ruby eye encrusted skull) and all custom detailed legs to accent the watch’s 30 degree inclined flying Tourbillon set. This watch is also the first ever without any link between the hands and the movement. The display itself features bottom lit red LED lights, a pivoting 90 degree hinge mechanism to hide the merchandise, a step and repeat ghost skull and cross bones print pattern, and an all laser cut steel outer shell. It is not everyday our projects get so creative so it is wonderful to be able to showcase many of our capabilities through this piece.
