I wanted a sled for the little man that was more stable then the traditional curved back one you can buy. I looked around the internet and could not find any plans to go by. All I could find were sketches from scout builds years ago. So I found a picture of a sled I liked and made up the dimensions as I went. The sled is made entirely out of left over birch I had.
I used bent lamination for the skis and the handle bar. The whole sled is lashed together as nails tend to work themselves out over time.
I tried it around the backyard and it slid well. Hope to get out this weekend and give it a good run.
