    The only bench I know. Everything you need is there. You just have to dig for it.

    Two 4x4 blocks, wrapped in rescue tape, work beautifully for those who don't want to shell out $100+ for vises

    Thats pretty much the whole setup, the ski holders and the universal jig that will mount everything

    the slot in that T jig will hold a ski or board on edge, make 2 of them and zap em to the bench with drywall screws where ever needed

    that bench is made from a cut up water bed frame that a downstairs tennant left, so because i got a tennant I got lotsa money but no basement

    so this tuning bench is in the spare bedroom, a 4x8 sheet of OSB protects the laminate floor from wax or dropped tools

    That's a 240v plug. Must be waxing hot.

    I made the waxing jig with the cleat on the bottom to be held by the workmate,

    the vise is also bolted to a wooden cleat

    I used to bolt a cleat on the bottom of a park prs4 bench mount deluxe bench model repair stand also which worked great

    you could/you should buy one of these bad boys and tell the wife you needed it for all them home improvements eh

    Not the waxing bench, but might as well post a pic of the Ghettowerx lab...

    Still in flux after moving. Yearning for garage space.

    Yup, nice lil convection unit. Also, heating sections of shell plastic, other random bits of Intuition foam, molding rubber gloves and baking gluten free pizzas...

    A wax box has changed my tuning life. The tunes still suck, but are so easy and tidy that I am much more likely to do them. Cleanup takes seconds and the box hangs on a wall when not in use.

    Hmmmm, I have an 8 ft piece of 16" wide OSB sitting around that I use for regluing skins,

    maybe I will make it into a wax box that can still be turned upside down for the very odd ski gluing job

    cuz the wax shavings are a pain

    Wax box looks great.

    For most of my maintenance waxes, to mitigate scrapings I changed waxing method to crayoning a wafer thin layer of wax, iron it in and just buff it smooth. No scrape.

    My old man had a non-ski workbench that looked like this, he knew where everything was unless one of us kids used it and put it someplace else in the pile, then he was SOL.

    I watched a guy wax a pair of skis crayoning the wax on the base and using a heat gun, no iron, nothing on the bench, no clean up.

    That looks a little short to me. What's the length? Will it fit 190+ cm skis?

    Tried that too but it was actually more time consuming and took more mental focusing energy than the crayon/iron method.

    Sometimes buff with palm of leather ski gloves to give 'em a little boost of water repellency and boost grip tackiness but usually just use a plain old scotchbrite pad. IME, almost anything does the job though; old sock, paper towel, etc....

    I hung out top side at the Canadian 4 cross championships as the go for when they were here

    the wax guys had already waxed all the skis the night before, before each race they would rub a little piece of high fluro into the ski, rube it in with a a cork and take it all off with a roto brush

    Thatís a ski from the home ski museum (I dig Graves!) and is 190. I built the box for my longest ski in regular use, 188, but one could make any size wanted. Iíve also seen designs that are hinged in the middle so that they can be folded up, with supplies inside, and taken traveling.
