Always room in line for another project

#260431 by robinson46176 » Tue Jun 11, 2019 3:05 pm

A "sort of" cool but tired old sleigh that sold at an Amish consignment auction this spring. I forgot about it and failed to watch it sell so I have no idea how much it sold for. There were 5 auctioneers selling at the same time (This is always a massive sale). I like to get pictures of such items with dreams of building one. There was a scroll shaped top for the front dash panel that had become detached and was laying in the sleigh on the floor.
I love items like this and I would love to build one by Thanksgiving.
This one is really really crude but I took this picture more just for the idea than any details. There are a hundred things I will do differently including a pair of outboard steps, lots of trim and of course soft seats. :)

Our son and I do quite a bit of custom metal fabrication and have for many years. The ironwork will be easy.
Below is a picture of a small sleigh that I made for my mother years ago to display some large dolls that she used to collect. I possibly posted it here before. It of course was just for looks, no function. :) It has Santas in it at Christmas, the stuff in it in this picture must have been preparing for Easter.
