this innovative way to display your favorite vino. The bottles are stored
on their sides to properly maintain the wine's integrity, while the reclaimed skis, slightly weathered from use, add a touch of fun and excitement.
Handmade by a group of artisans in Millbury, MA.
Due to the reclaimed nature of the skis used for the item, colors and patterns may vary from the image above. Each wine rack will be unique and different.

- the maker
Michael Bellino started making Ski chairs back in 1993 after purchasing a house on a lake and building an enormous dock that needed furniture.
Looking for an alternative to plastic patio furniture, he found inspiration in O'Neils Bike and Ski Shop, which he managed. Two weeks and two prototypes later, he created the first Ski chair with his old racing and bump skis. Michael says he's still sitting in that original chair today!
Over the next few years he expanded the product offering using different types of sports equipment. Understanding the importance of recycling, Michael recycles all types of sports equipment, uses recycled plastic for bench legs and ships all of the larger products in recycled bicycle boxes.
"I consider myself more of a deck and dock carpenter, but by trade, I graduated with an electrical engineering degree, and creating furniture was really a leap of faith." Michael says. "...The engineering degree will probably come in handy when I decide to add a lighting system to the Ski chair!"
Currently, Michael and his team recycles over 20,000 pieces of sports equipment each year, which includes snow and water skis, wake and snow boards, hockey sticks, baseball bats and golf clubs.
Recently, Michael has worked with these different types of sports equipment to create smaller items, at lower price points, such as wine racks. collection
