Our 200th project is kind of a simple little thing.

Barb wanted a small sled for a holiday display,

so I drew up a pattern, & went to my shop for a couple of hours.

She was very pleased with the results.

This is made of Aspen, Bigtooth Aspen a tree that blew down at our cabin.

We burned quite a bit of the wood, I wished I had saved more of it.

I like it better than Basswood for carving. The grain has some life in it.

Assembled with a glue gun. The sled is 9 1/2” long X 4 1/2” wide. This doesn’t have a finish on it.

It looks nice as is.

how wonderful.
Congrats on the 200th project and what a sweet one it is.

I really enjoyed reading the story as well and I just have say how special and how inspiring it when you post “we” and “our”.

That’s a lot of sawdust under the TS, so to speak., congratulations.

Pretty darn good project for a few hours in the shop. Looks life size to me ( that’s a really big teddy bear)
