I also used:
Clamps to hold the pieces as they glued
Hand saw (wood) for making in-cuts
Handsaw (multipurpose/drywall) to start the cuts on the skis
hacksaw to finish the cuts on the skis
chisels to remove the chunks between the in cuts
rasp/files to round/smooth the general shape out
skinning knife for detail work
square for measuring/marking
Measure tape for ""
Miniblind cord for a bow string?
Not a good idea...
