Being an avid skier and having access to lots of old skis which have no purpose this seems like an opportunity for me to make use of them. There are lots of examples of ski furniture and accessories which be made out of skis that have passed their prime. Some of the design considerations that i have been considering making are a wine rack out of skis, a simple side table out of skis or even a chair out of skis. There are some examples of some of these which are pictured below.
Another consideration that i have as a backup plan is to have some sort of furniture made out of street signs.
