wow. that's a nice collection.

i like their title, "Mass-produced skiers use mass-produced skis", which brings me to the following: littleKam created this for SkiBuilders earlier this year

we're thinking of making t-shirts (and stickers) as a means for fund raising to support SkiBuilders.com. anyone interested? good idea or bad? let me hear your thoughts...

It is cute.
What about adding a picture of a router and a wood core on the back...

My son Cal (*Armada*) and I would love to be able to get a couple of SkiBuilders.com tee shirts. And if SkiBuilders.com is a financial drain on you guys We would be happy to donate. Maybe thru PayPal or via a check/snail mail. I can't adequately express my appreciation to the 3Ks for this great web site. When my son called me at work this summer and told me to check out the SB web site, I was blown away. That night we started planning our skis (and snowboard). This has been a great learning experience for us both and since Cal (jr in hs) plans on being a Mech. Eng., this has been a great educational step forward.

We each have 1 ski out of the press and will be pressing their mates this weekend, weather permitting. We will be posting journal soon.

I would definitely take a shirt, and a few stickers. It is funny because I was actually thinking about stickers today on the lift.

davide: i like your idea. the router and woodcore will be a nice touch. we'll post a design soon...

Wheezer: Kam, Kelvin and i are very delighted to hear that SB has had a positive impact on you and your son. nothing pleases us more than to hear Cal considering a degree in ME! please do not hesitate to contact us with any additional questions. besides, how can you go wrong by questioning three engineers who love to ski? at the very least, the conversation will end up about skiing! :D

as passionate skiers (and tinkerers), our mission is to bring the art and science of ski building to everyone's garage. we hope that SB will become a hub for sharing information as well as a place for new innovative ideas. there's still a lot more to discover about ski building.

we sincerely appreciate your offer to support SB and its cause. as for donations, at this time we are able to more or less support the site finiancially. we hope that by offering t-shirts and stickers, the funds will help expand/improve SB's resources and capabilities. though we won't turn down donations, they are not expected or required.

please enjoy what we have to offer. as always, we look forward to seeing the work of you and Cal.

kind regards,

Relating to Kam's last post, having this website come up last year during my freshmen year at college and being in ME and being able to relate what I was learning to this was one of hte best things to happen to me. Before I found this site it had always been a dream to make my own skis, and I even started modeling skis in Pro/E after the first day I ever used it in a class. Then I found this site, and have been working on coming up with everything I need to make my own skis. I definitly am int he same boat being a tinerking type guy, and once I get the press completed (this weekend maybe???) I can't wait to start making skis!

Thanks a ton!

And also, how would I go about getting one of those shirts so I can rock it once I have a pair of my own to ride?
