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...
