Yes, that’s the way to the Router Slopes… using Skis… A good way to ski! LOL
That’s a cool setup…
I made some Skis a few years ago too… I’ll have to find that stuff and post it…Mine is slightly different… but very functional… ... but I do not have such a NICE Photo Shoot as you do…

nice sled. I have one setup to flatten big slabs. Once you build one and find out how useful they are, you can’t do without one.

Harry, how do you use that to make letters? Are you somehow following a pattern, or just removing wood from some kind of stencil you have on the board??

Where did you get the metal tubes to do this? Is it just a hollow tube with a threaded rod through it or a long post with threaded ends?
