  • I really can't wait to see how long it takes for some kid to plow into something and that stylish aggressive geometry decapitates the kid. Can you really not see how dangerous this thing is? This is an example of style over function!

  • A little heavy for a sled especially for a kid to handle. No steering capability. That will certainly be exciting. Have to agree with kerrycwells. Try 3/4" PVC trim boards for the frame and maybe 1/4" fiberboard (glue and screw) for skin with a few coats of poly to seal against moisture.

  • Cool design but concerns on plywood joints (water) and overall safety. Perhaps a modified design of using kerf relief cuts in the 3/4" plywood vs cutting 8 different pieces for the underside. That would allow bending the front in a traditional style toboggan while keeping plywood base in one piece vs relying on some screws. Some 6" or 8" wide X 3/4" pine can be formed to support the front of the unit.

      By RYOBI NATION, on July 17, 2018

  • I was wondering if you can just use a 18 gauge brad nail for the whole project? Thanks!

  • My wife has wanted me to trim out our windows for a long time... your how-to helps with the how but I'm a bit confused. You talk about the top pieces being MDF but the photos look like plywood. Am I missing something? When you put the 1/2" plywood on the sides does it help straighten out the sides? Ours are nowhere close to straight and level and hope this makes getting them there possible! Thank you. Bob

  • Hi, nice work. On the video you say that the canvas will be available at the website but I can't find it.
    By fboss1978, on January 21, 2015

  • Hi, your plans do not detail where the back is attached in relationship to the bottom. Can you tell me the dimension from the front of the legs? Thanks
    By v2fast2hit, on March 12, 2015

  • Hello and thanks for the questions and comments! Sus4, Yes the 18" pipe and 2 flanges was left out because depending on the size of the slats it may not be needed. I have versions of these chairs with thicker slats and without any middle support. A 2x4 and 4 L-brackets is cheaper alternative that works as well. fboss1978 the template is available on this page where it says "Download and print the template " v2fast2hit There are a few reasons I don’t indicate it. Measurements on curved surfaces are often misinterpreted. Depending on how you cut and sand this the location of 2 reference points could be off. The template is sanded off already so I a mark on that would not be helpful. Lastly different people like different angles and different locations for the back depending on the height. Since we are screw from the inside its ok to try a couple angles and see what you like before the slats go on.
