One of things I looked forward to the most about moving to Denver was having the opportunity to take my kids sledding. We usually use those lightweight foam sleds and they work great, but I thought it would be fun to make an wooden sled for them to enjoy. While I doubt this sled will break any speed records, it works quite well and is also great for pulling the kids around the neighborhood when the streets are covered in ice and snow.
This project began with the steam bending of rails, which you can learn more about in this video. Once you have your rails, you can jump back to this video to see the remainder of the construction.
To help protect the wood, I used Total Boat Gleam 2.0.
