I do not have a good photo of the item, because it was sent as a gift but the windchime made out of a ski pole is amazing. He was also very quick to respond and even made it extra special by customizing it more for me. I had tons of questions and he was very patient with me. I will definitely be purchasing more of his items in the future and I highly recommend his shop. -Jaz

Sunday photo shoot - half the fun is making, the other half is communicating what I do to others. Here is one of my newest pieces.

About

We are makers at heart - using recycled materials to sustain our creative energy

The shop started as a way to share our creations with the larger community. The first pieces were made from my family's own personal skis and poles. My goal was to make some unique pieces for our condo located in the mountains of Idaho. These were one-of-a-kind pieces because of the sentimental value of our personal skis but also due to unique size considerations.

My thoughts then turned to what else could be made from unused, unwanted, or obsolete destined-for-the-landfill skis and snowboards. A little research turned up numerous examples used for inspiration, most of which could be made using our mental and physical toolchests.

Whenever I showed my work to friends, family or co-workers, their response was that there was probably an opportunity to sell them to like-minded interested buyers. My challenge was, then, to find them.
