MM, chrismp, and Mad are all correct. I'm at 14.25 and I would not go any smaller... not even .25". The more space you have to move the cassette in and heat blankets the better. the first time you shove it in there can be quite hard and the more space you have the better. I say make 30-50 skis then ...

That one is similar to the grass roots one. It looks like it was cut out with a router. cnc or template I'm not sure but certainly a router. reminds me of the wood dinosaurs I had as a kid.

So my 9 month pregnant wife is big time nesting... So guess what I'm going to build to get the skis off the front porch... would you change anything? I was thinking a bottom would be good so the skis don't sit on the ground. (mine will be in the basement on concrete floors.) You build yours out of p...

I agree with Vin on this one. I would say that it adds at least ~20% more stiffness. I've made two pairs of veneer skis now and they are both stiffer than I wanted. i'm getting closer to nailing them but like everything with ski building, its a journey...

Way to call me out... ;-) Good idea Dtrain. This would go back to the idea of doing stickies on this web site. The only other thing that I have in the layup that was not mentioned is I put CF top and bottom. So i'm sure that is taking away a little of the rabbet height. Dtrain: 3mm sounds really hig...

Pinch points can be created during inflation of the bladder. Usually the body of the ski and the very tips of the ski are the primary contact points. As the bladder inflates, it fills in the remaining gap between the these two point and this can lead to low pressure points. The edge set becomes a b...

That just looks like a roughing end mill? Is that what you meant to post? That won't really do much for profiling? I use a 1.5" straight flute router bit too, seems fine. yup thats what i meant to post. they profiled out cut the shape of the core with this. I'll see if I can dig up the video again.

I only do a 3/4 wrap and have had very good results and no failures. I haven't seen anyone use metal as the base, I would think this would add a lot of weight in the tip and tail and increase your swing weight. epoxy: It really depends on what is in the "sandwich". FB weight, CF weight, how many lay...

I was looking around to see what the "Big Boys" use to profile their skis with. check out the one that J skis uses. this thing is beastly: http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c26/Skimann20/Ski%20Building/0a02858d-0167-414c-acb8-2ca4b27dd47d_zpse5fa4474.png I currently use 1.5" with good results. http:...
