    It gets well above 135 in a shed or un attached garage on many days south of the mason dixon line. And. cars are made for enduring heat. Skis are made for enduring cold.

    The long tool racks would be an upgrade for eleeski's rack rather than Phil's rack. Different applications.

    My set up in VT from a few years ago. Can't see them once the skis are on them.

    Good job. That is a viable option for hanging them. I just don't have the depth to do it that way where i have them.

    OK, OK.....lets go with any plastic or rubber left outside in the Arizona Sun. It will quickly degrade but that should not be an issues in an attached garage.

    does hanging by the tips mess with the rocker?

    Oh, man now we're talking! I THINK I can handle screwing these to a board and screwing the board to the wall studs (but that is pushing the envelope). And $15 a pop is probably less than I'd spend on lumber just trying to get 1 of them shaped right with the belt sander. :roflmao:

    Haven't noticed any detrimental effects.
    I would say most of shops I have been to hang their skis by the tips.

    I'm wary of storing skis joined like that. I think I read somewhere that it's better to store them individually, standing up, and I've always meant to attach a rack to the wall so they can stand side by side without falling over.

    I keep buying more skis, though, and running out of wall space (not to mention time).

    I will use it this way when I am waxing the skis, a great way to stage them in the waxing process.

    I'm beginning to come around to your way of thinking. :)

    Great set up for waxing. Thinking about making a cart with the racks in a high density manner. Right now I just lean the waxed skis up against whatever to cure overnight. It gets pretty dicey with 8 to 10 pairs. OSHA would have a fit.

    Quick thought on the shaping of the toe logs. Mount all the preformed lugs on a small plywood sheet. Tilt the table saw blade and gang cut them to get the bevel. Shape the lugs with a top bearing straight bit on a trimmer. 1/4" plywood template. Ease the edges with a belt sander and we are good to go.
