The first picture is of the original deteriorated wood from the sled. I hope the second speaks for itself…. keeping my fingers crossed (yes, I still have ALL of them)

Very nice. I rember riding one similar when I was a kid a long long long time ago. Have a friend who restores kids bikes and has similar success. It’s nice not to throw things out and see that they get a good home somewhere. Thanks for sharing.
