Made this sleigh as a christmas gift for my maternal parental unit. I’m actually giving it to her here very soon so she can enjoy it for the holidays. It is large enough to hold one of her holiday teddy bears. The wood is not stained, it is the natural color (ps i hate using stain). I used maple, bubinga, and walnut to make this sleigh. It measures approximately 25.5” long.

This is really nice.
Any chance you have cut plans for this to sell or share. My wife would enjoy one.
