I first saw a spark kick sled in a Norwegian magazine. They work great on hard, icy surfaces. I bought the steel rails online from Mountainboy sledworks and modified plans for a very rustic version that I found online. The rails and uprights should be made from straight hardwood such as hickory, ash or maple. I ended up using ribbon grain fir since I had the right boards left over from another project. They ended up being stiff enough and kept the weight down.

That looks like a really fun project. We don't get enough cold weather around here to make it worthwhile for me, though.

If I was to build it, I'd be tempted to do the "curved" part with bentwood laminations.

Hope you enjoy it. Don't think I would. But as the years have piled up I have become much more cautious.
