I made this sometime ago from a photo in a magazine (possibly FWW) If I remember correctly the style was New England. It still doesn’t have steel runners. I made it years ago with a wee girl in mind, daughter of a friend, she’s now over 20. Must speed up my work-rate.

Nice sled…see the two handles on he sides you grab those and take a run then you jump on it to race with your friends, I had one of those, lots of fun we had. Thanks for posting and reminding me of my younger days.

That is a simple but elegant design and you craftsmanship did justice to it.
