Interesting, but I’m not sure I completely understand what you are trying to describe. Picture 1 will have these four skies glued side by side to make two @ 6” wide?
Pardon my ignorance but what is photo #3? I’m trying to visualize the final outcome. Just attempting to understand the project, thanks.

do you steam the whole piece of wood or only the part that is taking the curve?
any tutorial on this?

Not sure if I’ll have time this year since winter here is around the corner, but it would be cool to make a sled for the kids.

I didnt have any 6” planks so made them to 3” they will be side by side so its gonna make two 6” skis.
Picture 3 is when i take my piece out of the steamer and clamp it to my jig to obtain the right curve.
I could only steam the first foot of the piece but idecided to steam the hole piece for no reason
