No tools or experience necessary (but, any additional block planes, drills, Phillips #2 drill bits, or countersink bits would be helpful)
“In this 3+hour workshop participants will be able to construct their own hauling toboggan that will be ready for use upon completion. Participants can choose from 5’, 7’, 9’ or 11’ lengths. Construction materials will include black HDPE pre-shaped blanks, finished white ash crosspieces, stainless steel screws, and 4mm accessory cord for running line, tumpline, and lashing system. Participants will prepare and finish the plastic blank, fasten crosspieces to blank, and string up toboggan. The end result will be a low maintenance, durable, and rollable toboggan that will provide years of use trekking into the bush.”
