Ski Hard, Rest Easy

Wave goodbye to the usual lake house furniture with this one-of-a-kind rocking chair handmade from retired water skis and unfinished Canadian cedar. Perfect for when skiing fanatics finally make it to dry land. Handmade by Mike Bellino in Massachusetts.

The skis are treated with a polyurethane finish. Remaining wood is left untreated. Bellino allows wood to undergo a natural finishing process called "checking," which creates naturally-occuring cracks that do not compromise the integrity of the wood. Cover if left outside. Unfinished cedar will patina and weather if left out in the elements, which is the artist's intention. If you prefer to keep the chair as is, treat it with a polyurethane finish or wood stain.

Skis will be slightly weathered due to use. 300 lb capacity. Some assembly required. Due to the handmade and recycled nature of this item, each is one-of-a-kind and will vary slightly.

Michael Bellino ignored the advice of his ski instructors when they told him "never sit back on your skis." He made his first ski chair from old racing and mogul skis gathered from the ski and bike shop he managed, and still enjoys lounging in that chair at his lake house today. Since creating that prototype, he's expanded his sporting equipment designs, recycling over 20,000 items each year: snow and water skis, wake and snow boards, hockey sticks, baseball bats, and golf clubs.
