Repurposed Vintage Water Ski & Parts Double Towel Rack

Hey folks!  I've got one of my newest creations to throw at you today!

I took a vintage water ski and the tips of two matching skis and put this double towel rack together with the help of some mixed additional parts.  The rods are acrylic for better strength.  Plus, the glass ones are getting harder to find.  It was a booger getting the angles right on the rods, but it worked out perfectly.

It's fitting the main body ski is a vintage Cypress Gardens design since this creation is going to a customer in Florida.

For some more fun, the customer requested that the tail "wiggle" by using an old hinge.

"Fins" from a vintage vegetable steamer were used on top of each "fin" towel rod support.

Vintage Pepsi bottle caps cover up the connection of the rods and back fin.

As long as I can keep finding great, vintage water skis, I'll be trying to create new and fun repurposed creations out of them.  Stay tuned!!

Brian did a fantastic job creating this towel rack. It was a surprise present for me, and it really was a wonderful, creative surprise. Everyone who comes in is amazed by this piece. It not only looks great in my 'fish' bathroom, it has become the star. Thank you Brian for you craftsmanship, attention to detail, and your overall creative design. This is a gift that will be enjoyed for generations to come.
