Not earth-shattering...Just a sled

Happy Saturday!!!

I don’t often design and make something for myself, but my front door looks a little sparse and need to decorate for the holidays.

I really wanted to design a sled. Woke up this morning and designed one. Lol
Only 3 Boards!!! 2 of 1/8” MDF and 1 of 1/4” Maple.

About 19.25” L x 7.25”W (at body) x 3.325” H

I really wanted to design the one I had when I was a kid! Happy with it! Just needs a bow and maybe some text and ready to hang!

Well done - but of course it would be. Brings back fond memories for me.

I know…makes me want to get my bread bags and put on my boots!!! I tried to be as authentic to my sled as possible. It’s a little short, but I think it’ll work.

I am so old that I didn’t have boots - I had overshoes.

Omg! Seriously? I need to see pictures of that!!! That is one on my bucket list. But to be honest, I would probably get 10 feet and just want to pet the dogs. Lol

Haha! I wish my dog liked to play. He thinks of me more like his butler.
