Kick Sled Building: Push and Glide

Course Overview

Scandinavians know how to move on snow. Follow in their tracks, and take advantage of snow-covered roads, sidewalks and trails by crafting a kick sled this winter. Learn both basic and advanced woodworking 
skills; from laminating wood to make runners to shaping a customized handlebar used for steering, you’ll walk (or glide) away from this course with some carpentry know-how as well as a sled. Up to two people may participate for the base tuition, so it’s a great family project. A completed sled measures 72”L x 16”W x 36”H, but collapses for easy transport. With gloved hands, grip the handlebars, push and glide! Give your friend a ride or add an exciting element to your dog walking routine this winter on your new, handcrafted sled.

This course offers a mix of both basic and advanced woodworking skills. The sleds will be made with white ash wood. Building tasks will range from hand-shaping the handlebars to laminating the bent runners.  Both hand tools and power tools will be used during the project.

North House is looking forward to hosting this course on campus in the safest way possible. As recommended by our HVAC consultants, we have increased air ventilation and installed an air filtration system. We perform extra cleaning of campus and are keeping class sizes small in our largest classrooms. Students must participate in a daily health screening and temperature check, agree to wear a mask at all times on campus, and to practice social distancing of 6 feet, as well as adhere to other safety protocols in some cases. See the full details of our COVID-19 protocols here.
