Chair Ski

Introduction: Chair Ski

When skiing along the river one day I was getting tired standing while skiing. I thought there most be a more leisurely way of water skiing. This is the day I began my thoughts of creating this chair ski. While beginning the first stages if planning I found that I didn't have many of the materials needed to create this master piece. So, I went down to the ski shed and found some old skis and search around and finally found a chair. You don't need to spend very much if any money on this project. No matter how much you spend on materials the steps and procedure are the same.
