This will not be a comprehensive treatment of all the different ways to accomplish these tasks, but rather just the ways that I have personally done it which work well for me. For alternatives see SkiBuilders.com and GrafSnowboards.com, where they have collected detailed how-to’s on how they and others build siks and snowboards. SkiBuilders has a great forum with even more information on alternatives.
The articles in this wiki are (or will be soon!) heavily categorized. The page Special:Categories lists all categories and is an alternative way to browse thru the content on this site.
What about skis?
I’ve only built snowboards, but you’ll find that ski and snowboard construction are amazingly similar. You can use all of the information here to build either, even though it all refers to snowboards. It’s okay :)
There are a few placeholders, but otherwise the articles that are here now are technically correct and up-to-date. The only exception would be articles in Category:Not Ready. Take them with a grain of salt. Any articles in Category:Needs Editing just need edits for grammar and readibility.
