I put together this sled for my grandson, it is a based on the pull behind sleds parents used to take their children through the snow. It is made out of poplar and has several coats of paint on it to protect if from the elements. I have waxed up the runners quite well and it so it will glide through the snow. I engraved a train on the front of the seat using my laser engraver, and added a red pinstripe around the seat bottom. It was a fun project to make, I know that my grandson will fit in it this year but will be too big for it next year, so I will have to start planning a replacement, planned obsolescence, it is what keeps us grandpa’s in the shop.
