Outdoor Skills

Kick Sled Building: Push and Glide

Course Overview

Scandinavians know how to move on snow. Follow in their tracks and take advantage of snow-covered roads, sidewalks, and trails by crafting a kick sled of ash wood this winter. Learn both basic and advanced woodworking skills—from laminating wood for making runners to shaping a customized handlebar used for steering, you will walk (or glide) away from this course with some carpentry know-how as well as a sled. Both hand tools and power tools will be used during the project. Up to two people may participate for the base tuition, so it’s a great family project. Students ages 8+ are welcome to participate with a full paying adult. A completed sled measures 72”L x 16”W x 36”H, but collapses for easy transport. With gloved hands, grip the handlebars, push, and glide! Give your friend a ride or add an exciting element to your dog walking routine this winter on your new, handcrafted sled.
