This was a fun little project I did back in December. We had a lot of snow in St Louis this year. The base is oak which I re sawed to 1/4 and the back slats and the runners are cherry. It was my first try at steam bending. The runners were steam bent the same as the back slats then cut in half at the band saw. I still have to put a finish on it but I cant get my daughter to give it back, she uses it as a TV chair, Kids! I finally got my daughter off the sled long enough to spray on a coat of all in one stain and poly.

I don’t own the plans for it they belong to the woodworking school I go to, But if you give me a couple of days I will take the measurements from my sled and make a sketch-up plan for you. That is a really good idea about the dog bed. People love to spend money on their dogs.

That’s one beautiful kid’s sled. The curved back really set it off. Excellent job!
