After watching John Nixon’s videos I decided to give this a try.

Took three attempts to get it right but I like it

Now for the add-ons

Those are great sleds and mine gets a lot of use. The Eagle Lake version seems the most popular model.

Stellar job on the sled….a little advice…..give more details in the build….materials used, diminsions, finish, etc….for those who can’t get or don’t have the video, this would be very helpful if they decide to build one themselves…..all info is vital in a project…...

Best thing I ever built. I went short on the fence and am regretting it. I will be replacing it soon.
