The support is pretty high, 11 or 12 inches. I have a boot sole centerpiece like John's (but not nearly as clean!) that is the same height. The height is correct for me - it puts the ski where I want it when I put it on a table. You could make it 6 or 7 inches shorter.
I need to make another one of these for tail a tail support. It might be a little cleaner, but not much! I'm using as much scrap wood as I can.. because it don't need to be pretty, and what else am I going to do with scrap wood?
There are lots of good ski vices around for ~$100. I wanted to build one cheap. As it turns out, not having any woodworking skillz at all means the project takes a long time. I could have worked at McDonalds for $5 an hour and gotten a vice quicker
On the other hand, I've learned a thing or two, which is always
good. Oh, and I got to play with [someone else's] power tools, which is good too.
