Pretty darn nice work on steam bending, this toboggan came out great. It’s hard to tell for sure from the pictures, but it looks like you bent the runners as one piece in lieu of multiple laminations. Is this the case? Great job either way.

Very cool.

You should do a blog on the process.

Well, first toboggan I’ve seen that wasn’t commercially built. Very well done. I tried steam bending a few times without very good success, it is almost an art in itself. Not a as easy as it looks like it would be. Congratulations. Terrific job.

Very well done. Bending 9/16 that much is no joke.

Very nice, I have wanted to make one for years. My wife gave up waiting on me and picked one up at an estate sale so i guess I won’t be making one after all.

Just curious, the sled is 7 boards wide, did you have any bends/boards end up as scrap?

Very cool! Just like they were back in childhood, including the yellow rope. This has been on my list of “in the future…” builds, thanks for the inspiration!
