Big thread bump... Miralas and I have been working on this project all summer when time and money permits. Right now I have all the materials in the garage and two ski cores and one snowboard core laminated and ready to go. I tested out my planer crib tonight and it worked pretty good, it will need tweaked some but I will be able to make it work when time comes. After that all thats left is getting some templates cncd and finishing a top mold. Super stoked.
Here is my current working drawing of what I'd like to make.
Planer crib, I have aluminum shims and three different thickness washers I am using to as shims.

Test core after planing, picture taken from right in front of the binding plateau looking towards the tail. Looks better in person.
