This is a sled I built from Ash for a friends little boy for Christmas a year ago. This was my first attempt at steam bending. It was a fun project to build.

Hey, that’s really great – I almost wish mine were young enough for one!

Scott -

Very nice! Looks like someone is very happy sitting in that sled.

If you have time, a description of your steam bending process would be an awesome blogging topic!

A great looking sled. I’d be interested is seeing your steam bending.

How hot does the wood need to be ?
How thick was the wood ?
How long was the wood steamed ?

Very nice, I like it.
