The winter classic is back. After an incredible first go-around, don't miss your chance to build a classic steam bent ash toboggan just in time for the snowfall. 

In the first evening of this course, master bender Karen will introduce you to the basic theory of steam bending and we will begin steaming and forming our Ash. By the end of the night it will be clamped up, where it will stay for several days. On our second evening we will begin laying out the necessary parts and doing some sanding and prep for the final complete assembly. Finally, on our all day session on Saturday we will be assembling the toboggan with premium brass hardware and applying the first coats of finish. 

Your toboggans will be ready for pick up the next day once the finish has dried. 

This course is taught by Karen McBride and OCW co-founder, Mike Grigoriev. Karen teaches woodworking courses at Lee Valley and Rosewood Studio and writes about her craft.  In 2001 she dismantled, relocated and began the restoration of a 200-year-old log house to serve as her woodworking studio - the Woodkilton Studio

Couples or teams (of 2 max) are welcome to work together on the same toboggan. Check out the video and photos from last year's build.
