I was given an antique sleigh which is in very poor condition. The wood is barely enough to use as patterns, but all the hardware and fittings are there.
The sleigh will be displayed in my front yard for a couple weeks at Christmas each year, then stored inside.
I have the following available:
I’m leaning towards Redwood. It will be painted, not varnished. I’ve built boats and used bead and cove cedar strips, so that may be an option for the curved pieces. If going that route, it might be covered in 4 oz fiberglass.
What are your thoughts?
Thanks in advance,
