Hockey Stick Bbq Set
Featured at UncommonGoods
We all know somebody (perhaps ourself) whose burgers always come off the grill looking like hockey pucks. Give them the right tools to flip that puck with this barbeque tool set. Designed by Massachusetts-based artist Michael Bellino, this set of tools is made from repurposed hockey sticks, retired from their days of slashing and slap shooting. Complete with a spatula, fork and a set of tongs, this grilling set is great for any wannabe winger or grilling goalie. Made in California.
Michael Bellino started making Ski chairs in 1993 after purchasing a lake house that needed deck furniture. Looking for an alternative to plastic patio furniture, he found inspiration in O’Neils Bike and Ski Shop, which he managed. Two weeks and two prototypes later, he created the first Ski chair with his old racing and bump skis. Michael says he’s still sitting in that original chair today!
Over the next few years he expanded the product offering using different types of sports equipment. Understanding the importance of recycling, Michael recycles all types of sports equipment, uses recycled plastic for bench legs and ships all of the larger products in recycled bicycle boxes. Currently, Michael and his team recycles over 20,000 pieces of sports equipment each year, which includes snow and water skis, wake and snow boards, hockey sticks, baseball bats and golf clubs.
