Anyone make cores for other people?

Always made my own cores but finding less and less time to do so lately. Just seeing if any of you guys out there would be willing to make skis cores or already do for other people.

Bamboo in New England?

I've been searching for a long time to find bamboo in New England and the only place I can find it is on the west Coast and shipping is outrageous. Does anyone know of any places in the north east to get bamboo?

I made a pair of all wood skis. I had a problem keeping wax on the base. After a couple runs the wax was just about gone and they would not glide very well. It required a steep slope to get them to move. Keep up the good work. Thanks, they do hold wax for about a week then they need to be put under...

Smart Skis

Been working on an all wood ski for about 2 years now and I think it is dialed in. Started with a normal build ski that had a poplar wood veneer base sealed with spar. It worked for about 20 days but after that all the wood around the edges ended up ripping out. http://i64.tinypic.com/25f0mcg.png Ne...

Basalt/hemp fiber

Found this stuff and it looks interesting but down side is it is only 2.5". Talked the company and they only sell that width and don't know of any other place that sells it wider. Has anyone ever seen this stuff from any other suppliers? https://fiberglassflorida.com/fiberglass-knit-and-woven/rail-t...

Maybe router your cores to an precise width and then machine a drop step into a spoil board or vac table on your cnc. Then you can just slide your core along in 3 setups. Even just one shoulder you always push one side of your core against will work. You then cut down to only 0.1mm above your table...

Why you dont cut out routing templates with the cnc (3 parts) and use these to cut out your core with a router. This way you have a one piece core and still not the hassle to do the routing templates per hand. Aligning the templates for routing should be easy. p.s. just for cutting out ... not for ...

Puzzle cores

I have access to a 36" cnc and have tried to cut my core shapes out with it. I did this by placing the core in cutting one half and flipping it to cut the other half. The alignment was off and it ended up being a waste of a core. The solution I came up with is a puzzle core, but I'm not sure how str...

How does Sunday January 31 sound to everyone?

Can anyone set up a poll to vote for what resort?

So far we have Mt Snow, Magic, Pico and Killington.
