Water ski shelf straight on view.
Side view gives the whole waterski feeling, while showing the front curved tip.  What a great addition to our cabin decor.  Thanks Sue for the great idea from a few years back.
This shows the detailing of the angle iron bracket that I purchased at Junk Market from Sue years ago.  It was specifically designed for this purpose.

I bought this vintage wood (green/orange) waterski for my husbands birthday one year and turned it into a shelf. The brackets were purchased at a Junk Market sale back when they still sold out of their occasional sale days.  I added the fun black framed ski/beach photos to the shelf.  Some are framed vintage waterski postcards, etc.  I also added the removable "Let's Go Skiing" sticker.  Those are the words out of my husbands mouth as soon as we get to the cabin, so how fitting!  We are out skiing over a 100 times a season in Minnesota, so this is the perfect shelf for our cabin.

I have things stock piled in my garden shed at the cabin, but haven't built it yet. We host the 4th of July every year, and was thinking those red/white & blue skis one sees around would look awesome as a buffet table. Not sure that I'd have room for this ski project inside the cabin, as it's only 700 ft., so tiny. Posted: 5:24 pm on September 9th

Do you remember what went into the water ski table? If not, let me know and I'll fill ou in. That table would look fabulous in your cabin.

Take care,
