Kick Sled Building: Push and Glide
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.
You will need the following tools for this class:
