Shotzski -- how to make and 1st trial run.

Materials: One old ski, shot glasses, washers, epoxy, strong magnets.

Tools: Drill, Drill bit, tape measure

Measure 4 equal 19" spaces on the ski, mark them.
Drill recess so the washer sits barely proud of ski surface.
Epoxy washer and magnet into base of each shot glass.
Epoxy washer into the drilled recess in the ski.
Let dry.

Attach glasses to ski (magnetically)
Fill with appropriate beverage.
Get 4 people with heads at approx same height.
Tip ski and take a shot.

We are clearly newbies at this: We don't have our heads at equal elevation.

You know there's a difference between a Shot Ski and a Shotzski?
Shotzski is a brand with boots and bindings.

Magnets and washers? DH just drilled a hole large enough for the shot glass.
The magnets and washers allow the shot glasses to be easily removed for transport and for cleaning.

Who is "DH" ???

If you drill a large hole for the shot glass, then what holds it in while drinking? And won't the shot glass protrude out the bottom and disrupt setting the ski on a table?

DH - dear husband.

Holes weren't drilled through. And your mouth holds the shot. Lot more fun!!

I'd like to make one out of a jumping ski. You could put 8 or 9 shot glasses on it. Also, for fun, put the shortest person in the middle.:ogbiggrin:
