    20180318_131653.jpgI made this one for my Maine condo. Its still up there even though I sold it. The holders are eleven inches apart, and the posts are 3/4 dowels that are 1 1/2 inches on center apart.

    LOL. However, if you go with 3 coats of stain and 2 coats of poly like I'd do it, it's going to take longer!

    That's looks REALLY nice. In fact, I like this more rustic idea of all wood better than buying metal fixtures. I'm 100% going to make this a little summer project. I already have the pine 2x4 scraps leftover from some large chalkboards I made last year for my wedding.

    True, I was just talking actual construction time

    Anyone have an opinion on the claim that having the Rocker-style hardware where the skis are hung individually instead of both being suspended between a single pair of dowels helps preserve the original rocker/camber? I've often wondered about that.

    My skis lay flat, bindings down in my rack as opposed to standing up right in the rack. I haven’t actually put it up in the new house because we have a ton more room and I just use one of the walk in closets as the ski/winter storage room.

    I'm no scientist...but I have a strong suspicion that my 180lbs body is putting more wear on my camber/rocker profile than how I store them.

    True, but cumulative hours spent on the rack vs. on the hill are just a bit different!
