CTDRad, those look very similar to a ski I've been building too, little sidecut through the waist, straight through the tip/tails. How do you like them? I really like the shape for everything but hardpack, and really like them for jibs and rails, jumps, i find them a bit loose.
daxtonthese look dope as fuck, great job man!
jmellberg800i would like to start making skis but i need a good way to press them together. do you use vacuum bags or do you u have a press? also do you have a heat blanket because some epoxies only cure at 180 degrees? sorry for thread jacking. the skis look sick man. if you dont mind could you pm me? i got some more questions.
razors-chazthis is a good place for asking questions like those http://www.newschoolers.com/forum/thread/651776/Official-Ski-Pressing-Shaping-Building-Constructing-Thread
but most of your questions can be answered on skibuilders.com where they have a how to and a forum with lots of recommended reading.
SmartThose are pretty awesome. Vermont this year has been pretty much hardpack all season and these skis handle it just fine. I'm a big fan of the slim shape there is less chatter and they move quick edge to edge which does help on the hardpack.
