    Man-cave ski display?

    I'm about to close on a house that will allow me to have a section of the garage dedicated to Volant. (Apparently I love dead brands, because I also love AMC.) I'm going to have a wall for my quiver of all stainless steel Machetes (and a Pontoon), but don't really know how I want to set up the display. Anybody have plans for a wall-mounted ski display rack? I'm thinking I can probably just cut something from plywood in vaguely the shape of a gun-rack, but I'd love to see how other people have set up ski displays.

    Following. Sounds like a cool idea and I've a bunch of old cool (to me at least) skis I'd like to display one day in the man-den.

    To display skis you want them topsheets facing out, I assume.

    I don't have pics, but years ago I hung skis similarly to this link, but using extruded aluminum channel and bolts with plastic spacers to hold multiple pairs of skis. It worked well.

    Glue, plenty of glue,. Last thing you need is one of those things coming loose and slicing open someone's neck.

    I considered something similar, but it won't work for my Spatulas. So I'm thinking it will have to be something horizontal, and spaced out far enough from the wall to give depth for the binding on the inside.

    Good point. Something like this?

    Good buddy has his old vr resting upside down on wood brackets with glass on top. It’s a cool shelf. But would be better up high so you can see the top sheets.

    Go back to square one and start the project in the LIVING ROOM instead of the garage. Or at least a nice den or family room should do. Garages are for vehicles, tools, and trashed gear, Nice display gear belongs in a nice climate controlled INDOOR setting. A converted garage is a waste of a garage when you can use wall space and set up your home theater stuff INDOORS.

    Pre law but what's the difference? My retro gear is displayed in the living room. Wife is tolerating it until the nest empties..

    I decided to show off the quiver in our hallway and went with the wooden hangers from Good Racks. Looks like they're sold out for now, but worked well for everything but some Protests.

    I picked up a bunch of big-box store tool organizers and mounted them on the walls sideways.

    That might actually be perfect! But I was hoping to mount them each as a pair recognizing that they'll stick into the room somewhat. I'll check the tool organizers the next time I'm in Home Depot.

    More importantly, tell me about the Hucksters you have below the Spatulas, and would you be interested in selling them?

    Volants were sooo good in their day. I still pull my Fire's out for early season rock/pow crushing.

    You still ski those BIG green M777s? I still have a pair in the closet with some 999s. Best all around hardpack, leftovers, and crud ski I've got. Even ran NASTAR on them one day in the snow and did OK..

    Probably not, I had been on the hunt for a pair for a couple years before I found these.

    The m777 is still there. It was my first "real" ski. I refer to them as my dragin' skis since that's how they get from the truck to the lift. Fuck they're heavy. Last time I skied them I used them for side slipping a race course. They don't come off the wall very often, but they do still have bindings and the bases are waxed.

    Depending on what and how you're hanging it, literally just the head of a screw can hold them on. It works easily for vertical (obviously), but I've even managed to do it pinching the edges of thin skis with wood screws with the pair angled on the wall. May only work with thin, cap-construction skis that don't have a ton of camber, but it does work. Presumably, a bigger bolt and bolt head would work on other skis. Just drill a pilot hole first.
    tl;dr the shaft of the bolt or screw will hold the ski up and the flange of the head will pin it to the wall.
    No longer stuck.

    My wife's fine with my retro skis and vintage skateboards displayed in the living room.. Lost the shack out back to make room for a new master bedroom suite addition and the deal was my gear came in the house for that. When the kids leave the nest, the gear goes in one of their rooms. But for now..
