I made this about four years ago for a client who wanted a copy of her sleigh to give as a donation to a charity auction. It is made with 1/2” plywood from the home center. You can get four sleighs out of one sheet of plywood. I made templates, so machining the curves was fast and easy with a router table. All the parts are made to interlock allowing it to fold flat for off-season storage. Before painting it, I applied two coats of oil-based polyurethane to fill and smooth the wood. Then I spray painted the red oil-based paint after letting the polyurethane cure for a few days.
