Catch My Draught?
Former slope shredders are turned into a one-of-a-kind bottle rack that stores and displays downhill daredevil's favorite beers, wines or sodas . Handmade out of authentic, reclaimed snowboards, Michael Bellino's unique upright holder is slightly weathered from catching extreme drifts in its past life.
Prop the three holes and horizontal bottom with your favorite brews for a unique and portable bar, or creatively store and display your best vintages--the natural incline is ideal for maintaining the wine's integrity. So, whether it's hanging with your best bottles or just chilling on display, this innovative reuse is bound to bring the excitement of the slopes to your home or winter getaway.
Handmade by artisans in Massachusetts.
Due to the reclaimed nature of the snowboards used for the item, colors and patterns may vary from the image above. Each wine rack will be unique and different.
Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

- 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
