You can make your own sled by following these simple instructions and diagrams.

  • To avoid stalling the saw, resaw the board in 1-inch increments. Position a featherboard in front of the blade to hold the wood against the fence.

  • Start clamping the runners from the center and work out. Wooden blocks distribute clamping pressure and protect the runner.

This nifty wooden ski sled combines the speed and agility of a steel-runner sled with the comfort and deep-snow running ability of a toboggan, making it a good choice for gentle golf courses or moderate slopes. And, unlike most sleds, this model comes with a unique rudder that allows you to steer and brake. What''s teeth these days, I had to make a few modifications.

Ubuildit Plans Shredder Ii Go Karthow to Ubuildit Plans Shredder Ii Go Kart for To make the curved ski runners, you''s much easier (and safer) than steam-bending, the technique that''t be afraid to change these dimensions as needed. I''t hesitate to use available stock.

Make the Form

Making the curved runners begins with creating a 5 1/4-inch-thick bending form. To build the form, I used three-quarter-inch medium density fiberboard (MDF). Made from wood dust, MDF is dense, easily machinable and inexpensive (a 4-foot-by-8-foot sheet costs less than $20). The downside to this product is that it''s a bargain: You''ll also save your back.

Next, establish the runner''t difficult if you have a guide. To make one for yourself, take a 60-inch-long thin strip of wood, mark the center of the strip, then string the ends together and bend the strip to make a bow. Adjust the string so there''t as tedious as the first, provided you use a router and a flush-trim bit. First, use the MDF template to draw the curve on the remaining pieces. Next, cut these pieces roughly to shape, but don''t glue, the last strip in place. You''t want to bend, but by cutting (or "") the board into three strips of even thickness, it''ll need a thin-kerf ripping blade, such as the Freud TK-206. The thin blade prevents the saw from stalling and maximizes the amount of wood left after the cut.

It''t take much to stall a small saw. To prevent this, make each cut in six 1-inch-deep passes. Finally, I made the last cut just less than the midpoint of the board and used a handsaw to separate the strips. Once you''s waterproof, it has a long working time and, because it foams as it cures, it''div-gpt-ad-1520616917643-0''ll trim the sides and ends after it has dried.

When you remove the runner from the form, don''s caked with a thick crust of dried glue. All it needs is a little cleaning and shaping. First, scrape or plane off the glue from one edge of the runner. Next, run the clean edge against your table saw''ll need to trim 1 inch off each end.

Make the rest of the rudder assembly as shown in the Image Gallery. Resaw the quarter-inch thick rudder sides from a piece of three-quarter-inch thick stock. Cut the yoke to shape before gluing the rudder sides. Finally, attach an optional aluminum wear bar to the bottom of the rudder if the sled will get heavy use.

Make the Seat

To shape the bottom edge of the sides, simply unscrew the last strip of the MDF runner form and use it as a template to lay out the curve. Next, cut to the line using a jigsaw or bandsaw. At this point you can use a belt sander to shape the side, or if you have a flush trim bit, you can clamp the form strip to the side piece and for 1 last update 2020/07/10 rout it to shape. Use the first side as the template for the second.To shape the bottom edge of the sides, simply unscrew the last strip of the MDF runner form and use it as a template to lay out the curve.

Use the first side as the template for the second.

After the sides are completed, center them on top of the runners, 2 inches from the back end. Mark their position with a pencil, then remove the sides and drill four screw holes through the top side of each runner. Flip the runners and countersink these holes on the bottom side. Finally, screw the runners in place. To space the seat slats evenly, I used quarter-inch masonite spacers. You may need to adjust the slats slightly so that they end flush with the front and rear of the side.

Finishing Touches

Barring any sled-meets-tree incidents, this sled will survive several generations of snow speedsters. As with all high-speed recreation activities, I strongly recommend riders always wear safety helmets. To keep the sled looking its best, invest a little extra time in the finishing. Disassemble the sled and coat all surfaces with a polyurethane. For extra color, I painted the sides with a spray enamel. Finally, wax the runners once or twice a season if you want extra speed.
