Just a quick point about core thickness and binding screws,

When I make kids skis the core is usually right on 7mm.
Once I add 19oz triax, an extra layer for binding retention, a graphic layer and a topsheet I've yet to drill thru with 7.5mm junior bit.

YMMV

Chris, that's pretty cool. I've been working with a company in China and have come up with a design similar to Katals landing pad. This is pic of one quite similar recently purchased by Evolution Freestyle Club north of Edmonton. Big thanks to their club for all the help I've gotten along the way!!!...

Thanks Twizz. Congrats on the new youngun! Ya, I never even got to the spin stage and at 53 probably won't. Even the rail park scares the crap out of me. We had a good park with a good selection of jumps here a few years ago, and was starting to get more comfortable in the air, when a kid got hurt. ...

Forgot to add.. He's got a freestyle comp coming up next week in Jasper. Moguls and Slopestyle He has been working real hard to get this trick under his belt. His plan is to 360 off the first mogul jump and back flip off the second. I guess we'll see how that goes. Last year he ate it hard trying to...

I think you're using router table, if not this doesn't apply. Set up your table and use a piece of tip spacer to set the depth stop on your router. then put your core blank in and start cutting. Leave the stop locked in this position until you are making something with thinner tip spacer, and you wo...

I have to 2nd what shif said about demo bindings. Mount point is a hard one to get right without some experimentation. Having a demo binding lets you move boot center back and forth a bit to find the sweet spot. And being able to let your friends ski on, and critique your creations, is well worth th...

Assuming you mean triax
Not,
"20/20 tirax glass"

Sideways pics are annoying.

Other than that looks pretty good.

Try flipping your base over so you can see the gap. There are a few on here doing it this way. (edge tangs underneath) I'm still a tang on top guy. And ya bending edges takes a fair bit of practice to get right, that's why the majority of us only do 3/4 wrap. I try to get my edges so they will sit i...

Corn starch and water.

Idea's been around for a while. Gotta say it might work as the new magic damping everone is hoping for.

I didn't mean for the tip to be that wide - I had 135 as my target but somehow cocked it up.

I'm guessing you forgot to factor in the fact that edges are gonna add ~4mm to your overall width.

Cores are pretty straightforward... Pick 3 nice 1x4's (25x100mm) Glue the flat sides together. Run thru the tablesaw or use a hand plane to get 1 nice edge in the block. (This runs on your fence on table saw) Rip the block into 17-20mm strips. (You should end up with 4 pieces, each containing 3 glue...
