    And the pool noodle rests are noted and appreciated!

    you don't need to spend a lot of $, just some 2x6 scraps & a hnad full of drywall screws

    I just got some blocks of 2x that are wide enough to work on 2 skis at once, build them up in an L shape to make enough clearance for bindings and screw them to my bench with DW screws, a half " wide slot lets me put the ski or board on edge to sharpen edges

    edit: if you don't make the slot too wide it will hold the ski for filing when the ski gets thicker in the middle

    Wow! And I thought that having motorized brushes at home was fancy.

    I just upgraded from this DIY option (which worked well for me, the wood piece is the same shape of the boot sole, you click it into the bindings and this holds the ski, but Fofette always complained when she used it):



    To this:

    Movable setup to fit a tight space (swap out with bike stuff in the off season)

    Long hooks on top are clutch for swapping skis without having to find somewhere to lean them.

    Does anybody have a post about using a cut-off 2x4 to snap into tech bindings to then vise the 2x4 for easier / more stable waxing? Thought I saw something in here.

    Sorry if this is buried in the thread, but after scanning through I couldn't find it.

    I've had good luck using a swappable boot sole screwed to a piece of 2x6.

    That's smart. I think what I saw was just a 2x4 shaved down until the teeth of the toes would click into the block, then you vise the block.

    Ive got something like that for both alpine and tech bindings Ive been using for over a decade. Works well. Will try to get a pic tmrw.

    That’s awesome. What else can you do with a dead boot?
    I’ve thrown a few in the trash.
    But now I feel like an idiot.

    I know what haffjell is talking about. Taking the time to shape a 2x4 into a boot sole. But fuck that. Just use a dead boot and screw it to a 2x4.

    Wonder if there's a simpler way. Tech toes clamp into 2x4, 2x4 clamp into vise. No boot sole, no tech toe inserts. Maybe you don't want to do edge work with soft pine as stabilizer, but it'd work fine for waxing, no?

    Heres my solution. Wife size alpine, my size alpine, and tech version.

    I also use a similar piece of wood for my new ski bike rack.
