Thanks for the good tips. 1. The break is actually in front of the finger joint. 2. I will taper further along the ski, and run one piece of Ash, 2cm wide from tip to tail. 3. Good idea with the extra layer around the binding area. I will do that. 4. I'll try to do without the dowel completely. And ...

Yes, I intend to do a more gentle taper , and I will run an Ash stringer the full length of the ski with Paulownia left and right for lightness... and do without the plugs, or put the plug in the widest part of the ski.

Nice skis Akiwi. I built very similiar ones as well. Used 2.5 mm balsa for the thin parts. Used the laser cutter at Makerspace in Garching/Munich to cut them out. Unfortunately the core shifted a bit and I have some Balsa exposed after flashing. How smaller is you core compared to base with edges? ...

Started on Saturday with these babies. Not sure if I would do this again. The core construction took me ages. Tons of Core is Ash in the middle, paulowniaalong the tip and tail, and a Maple veneer for the thin sections. https://abload.de/img/001hb-183454k1sml.jpg https://abload.de/img/002hb-162139mh...

Omg, that looks freaking awesome!

Jeez, This forum seems to have died.. No action here for ages.
I have just started on a pair of powder skis. About 108 under foot. I used the Vökl 100Eight as Basis.
I'm going to try something like the V-Werks construction.
