alright, first off. I am not a little 12 year old who has no clue what they're doin. Ive been building longboards for a while, and have pretty good expeirence shaping wood. That said, im gonna seriously try my hand at building skis. i am probably gonna use the 4X4 stainless steel instert pattern too. im thinking i might put a grind plate sort of thing in, but i dunno. im probably gonna make um like 175cm, and pretty wide. The only problem is, i dunno where to get base and edge material. if you want to comment, please do and if you know where i could buy that stuff help me out. by the way, i don't need presses, cause those are for mass production.
