    I have a set and have been using them for a couple of winters. Works great for me for both waxing and mounting skis. Live in an apartment so need to be able to mount or wax anywhere and the small size is great.

    Link is not working for me. Here's the manufacturer's page https://www.mrgripy.com/

    Product is spelt with two p's and website just one, but both spellings are valid Scrabble words.

    Looks like a molded version of the one I made with wood blocks and an old bike inner-tube.

    I have one I made out of 2x6 and a foam camping pad but it doesn’t have slot for edging.

    Hmm, now I know what to do with the kids' old Ikea stools instead of kicking them around the house.

    Also, is that guy waxing his skis or the car?

    expensive carpentry gear is not necessary, i just cut a slot with a hand saw but whatever wood you use must give enough clearance for the binding

    Chainsaw, skil saw, table saw, hand saw and chisel... any will do it. Table saw is nice because you can keep it straight and move the guard over 1/8” at a time.
