The sled is built for a friend to pull his kids around behind his quad. I used 3/4” plywood to make the body of the sled and painted it with the brightest outdoor paint I could find to stand out. It rides around on two snowboards and works great.

Very cool… Looks like the kiddies will be having a great time.

Did you do the metal work? It looks very custom.

Thanks for the comments. I did do the metal work. I find myself drawn to projects lately that combine several different kinds of materials to work with.
