Default Built a custom snowboard workbench

$75 for 2 freaking vises WITHOUT suction cups to hold the board down when scraping?! NO! I just bought some metal brackets, 4 suction cups, and some screws, then screwed a bunch of 2x4s to my garage storage desk. VIOLA! $13 snowboard bench that allows edge work, waxing, and scraping WITHOUT the board going all over the place or hurting the hell out of my knees. My buddy(another forum member) came over and we waxed on the bench for the first time tonight with music and beers, it works like a charm. I would highly suggest doing this, it's WELL worth the $13. I just can't justify 2 pieces of plastic costing $75. ABSOLUTELY ridiculous. CHEERS!

O yea and long live my Never Summer System 151cm. 5 years, over 100 days ridden, and still counting

Man, the word "custom" sure does get tossed around pretty casually these days...

great idea, but i would call it quickly put together and in bad taste, but in the end if it works it works (sorry diesel mechanic and i do custom work to machines so i am very picky about looks, because of the customer)

wow I don't care how it looks, I care that it works. It makes board work so much easier. And by using the word "custom", I just meant I built what I needed, not "super-fly-wezt-coazt-customs-mtv-chromed-out-bull-shit".
