I've got a serious problem of loving to work with vintage water skis.  Here's another project that I completed recently.  I wanted to make a whole batch of fish out of some of the different water skis I have on hand so I went to town!  They all feature roughed up edges and carved details.  I heated treated the metal stringer to bring some dullness and color out of the metal.  Ready for any wall!
