This is a reproduction of a traditional Norwegian Ski mold. Main differences with the original is the size (this is made to make kids skis - and the dowel in the front. The original had a straight piece of wood. I chose a dowel for strength and don't believe it is a stretch for the time period it was from. The reproduction workshop had a lathe in it - and ski making molds and tools where always made slightly different and made to meet the needs of the specific ski maker.)
The photo below is of the original - it is a photo I took at the Morgedal ski museum in Norway.
More coming on using the mold!
