This is one of the first projects I have made. I made this toboggan out of 8/4 white ash plain sawn. I ripped the strips on edge which gave me quarter sawn strips. Each strip was wrapped in a damp towel. I then used a teapot with a hose attached to it to pump the steam into the towel for 45min. The working time was around 1min. I made a jig for the radius i needed then clamped each strip. When the next strip was ready I removed the slat and kept a clamp on each board over night. I finished it off with Spar urethane. It was a great Christmas gift for my son.
