I used a plastic tub replacement part from commercially produced sled. Then i built the superstructure from oak lumber and peeled branches with stainless steel hardware. The finish is marine varnish.

Awesome sled. 100 hundred years from now someone will find it, refinish it and take their grand kid for a long ride.
Timeless creation.

Take more photos. please.

This is indeed incredible. Did you design it? Really, really great work. John is right, it appears to be well done and will last for many, many years….timeless. I am a bit jealous, I have no grandchildren yet, but I plan to replicate this anticipating many. Thank you for sharing this very fine work. Oh! and welcome to LJs. This is a great place to make very fine friends.
