hello everyone tonight

Here is the final picture for a comparison view of both sleds, as you can see they are very similar sleds but quite a difference in finesse

The lower sleigh is more of a work horse, a little heavier construction to stand up to hard use, the upper one "the casselman sleigh"--with all original blacksmith made metal parts-- is lighter, and is more of an all around useful sled, and make no mistake can take some heavy loads for sure, but is the one that you would reach for to do 90% of the farm chores

I had lots of fun doing both of them, I had to search out the naturally curved stock in the bush, which I did as we were cutting this years's firewood, the oak for the frame came from in house stock pieces that I had squirreled away up in the hay mow

hope you enjoy
