I made it at TechShop
Step 1: Materials
1/4 sheet 1/2 inch plywood
220 grit sandpaper
plunge router (CNC preferrred)
1/4 inch flat or downcut router bit/end mill
foam or soft bristle paintbrush
Step 2: Research
2. Measure your skis to determine what dimensions you will need. Pay attention to the width of the tails and the distance between the binding and the tail. Adjust the required dimensions as needed.
Step 3: Design and Layout
Step 5: Trim, sand and apply finish
Apply the varnish, sanding lightly between coats. I used a water based polyurethane.
Step 6: Assemble and test
1. Try out your skis in the rack. Ensure that the rack is stable and will resist tipping over. Long wide skis, such as powder boards are the most likely to cause problems.
