quick tip: die cut ski base

Post by SleepingAwake »

Hey everyone

I am working on a pair of super light freeride skis and I thought that was a good moment to show everyone how I die cut the base or rather the logo in the base. Maybe this inspires some of you guys to try something similar. The tool was made in maybe two hours and it held up way longer than I would have ever imagined.



Cheers!

Nice work!!

...somewhere around here i have some letters we did a long time ago. We used the same type of design and a hydraulic press. I'll see if i can find a photo to add.
