That board looks awesome. That redwood stain with the orange sidewalls turned out great.

Do you have any tips on staining veneer for topsheets? The advice I've gotten in the past is to stain before pressing so that epoxy on the veneer doesn't create a splotchy pattern.

In addition to sealing the frame, you could try pre-forming the silicone by hitting it with a heat gun at the tips and stretching it by hand. I think Sammer did something along these lines with his vacuum press

Where is the silicone blanket in your set-up? Could the heat from that be causing the warp in your base?

pmg is right, pictures would help

@grainhog -

Yup, they're most likely broken links. Those posts are 10+ years old, the image host could have died or changed URLs since then.

I don't ski, but I've seen this topic pop up a few times.

There's some sort of irony here that you can see a rubber capped monstrosity right behind your buddy's board.

Maybe he needs one of those....

Re: In the press today - as Swiss as it gets :)

- each stringer of the wood core was routed to match the sidecut: Every string is slimmer in the middle equally Do you have more photos that elaborate on this? I'm having a little trouble wrapping my head around it. Does this replace your usual method of core construction, where you add the final s...

Such thin tips! Excited to hear how these ride.

Does you core extend all the way to the tip and tail?

stormyclouds - these boards are amazing! they look super fun.

Where along the camber profile are you beginning the early rise?

How does that deep swallowtail on the first three ride? Ever tried it on hardpack?

Love this thread. I had an idea in the same vein as PTTR's short skis for having fun on low-angle aspects and less-than-great days: A super-short snowboard that would be basically a snowskate with bindings. I'm thinking something along the lines of a 110cm with a fat waist - just enough length to ha...

Wow! Beautiful skis!

Is that a wood veneer topsheet on the 3D/balsa core skis? How did you get it to conform so well to the core?

That was very helpful! Thanks for taking the time to make that. I'm about to lose the SolidWorks license I get through work and have been looking for an affordable replacement - Fusion360 looks like the way to go. That would be awesome if you made additional videos - stuff like adding edges, sidewal...
