My daughter has fallen in love with peg stilts. She has a pair of stilts that I made from Douglas fir and plywood, but I’d like to make something a little nicer.
Here is a picture of some peg stilts that are similar to the ones I’d like to make:
I’m concerned about the area where the wood that comprises the legs of the stilts “sticks out” to support the foot rest. What type of wood can I use that will not split off from the main part of the legs? Thanks.
(My daughter’s about 5’5” and fit.)
