MY HONEY AND I BUILT THIS SKI BAR USING 3 WATER SKI'S AND AN OLD LADDER. THE BOTTOM SHELF IS OLD FENCE. THE COCA-COLA BOTTLE OPENER WAS BRAND NEW AND WAY TOO SHINY SO I DISTRESSED IT WITH CINNAMON AND MOD PODGE GLUE THEN I POLYURATHANED IT.  SORRY THE PICTURES AREN'T THAT GREAT.

What character! I like the simplicity of it.
This would be great on my huge deck. Then I could
make a side table using one of my old COKE crates.

If it’s a piece of furniture made with skis how can’t you love it! What a great bar.

MimiToria writes: This is one of my all time favorite Junk Market original projects that they show in their books. Looks like you executed it perfectly. I have parts of a project in my cabin garden shed to make my own water ski food bar, but my dh and I have different opinions of what to use the skis for. He wants a bench, I want a ski bar like yours. Way to go and thanks for the inspiration.
