Custom Water Ski Furniture. Dang, Why Didn’t I Think Of That? Thanks Ski – Daddle!
Every year I walk up to the vintage water skis for sale and think.. Self, these are cool. And then I move on, frustrated that all they would become is a prop used in a boat show.. But this year at Lake Dora, I found Ski Daddle at the lake Dora show. WOW! As one of the other un named Woody Boaters said. “Finally, someone figured out something cool to do with those water skis” I could not have said it better. Yes there are purists out there all guffaw over this. But these skis are usually shot for one reason or another.
Regardless of all of the preservation folks feelings, DANG, ya get to have some cool art furniture on your back porch or lawn, beach.. At least thats the hope since we bought two chairs and the saucer table. The other cool part of all this is. No two are alike. Its all from found skis and cool water stuff. Got a boat house apartment.. Now ya got a ..by the way, insane comfortable…chair, love seat.. If you are interested in buying some for yourself. Click here. Tell them Woody Boater sent ya.
We are big fans of Adirondack chairs and have a number of them on the lawn and dock. There’s something about them that makes them perfect for relaxing by water.
Adirondack chairs made from water skis? Can’t get any more water friendly than that! I sat in one of them and it was very comfortable. Bring them to your tent next year and I may not leave at all!
LOL, there were definitely 3 in the tent on Sunday. Someone must have photo proof.
LOVE these chairs!
Stewarding a 38′ Connie gives me plenty of varnish work and I can see these needing a coat or two in a year or two.
BTW you keep saying that you bought two chairs? I swear I remember stuffing three into that Suburban. What did you do STEAL the third?
Beautiful picture of your cabin and V-Berth. I see a sink on the right. Is that part of your galley area or do you not have a sink in your head? Which, I’m assuming, is the door on the port side.
That is the galley and there is a sink in the head.
My wife has a cousin with a condo in the Western Virgina hills where there are ski slopes. The name on the door…Ski Daddle.
Nice picture of Jim Frechette’s little Chris Utility in the header.
I couldn’t agree more! Thanks, Matt
They’re even better when made with your own skis. I didn’t grow up water skiing, but I had a basement full of my old snow skis that I had made into adirondack chairs. I sit back with a pint after a day of boating, looking at the lake, and think about all the good memories in the mountains with those old Atomics and Rossignols.
VERY COOL IDEA!
I love the vintage watersports furniture, especially the water-saucer coffee table. This is a great way to add a retro/hydro feel to camp & cottage. I’m glad that they mentioned “no USABLE historic watersports equipment was harmed in the making of this furniture”.
I’ve always thought it would be great fun to have an old CC aquaplane…I saw a refinished one in Lake Geneva at the big 2012 ACBS show, plus some nifty CC waterskis at Algonac as part of a boat display.
Found this funny picture… here’s what some bored college kids did to old aquaplanes when they weren’t anywhere near water- just drag it behind mom’s Packard in the dirt!!
No WONDER these are so hard to find in good condition today! :6
And speaking of good old-school waterskiing…remember this classic?

I suppose I will forgive you for buying MY table…
I still don’t know if you stole that third chair or not?
