I’m planning to build a few laminated wood cross country skis later this winter. Oak or Hickory cap and shoe, pine/fir fill under the binding area to get the proper camber. The plan I’m following is from the Fine Woodworking “Bending Wood” book.
If anybody’s done this for real (there are not many hits on Flickr or Google), what kind of adhesive should be used for the lamination? When finished, the ski will probably have a 2-3” camber (bow) under the bindings, ie tip and tail touching the ground, binding area will be 2-3” off the ground. When used for skiing, the ski will be flattened out thousands of times per outing, at temperatures below freezing.
Normally, I use Titebond 3 for everything. Would this work? Would appreciate your thoughts.
