WONDER HORSEStrange trail remains for these sleds, rapidly descending from the mountain: the impression is that someone drove on one ski. And only bends on the side added short stroke of the second track. Unusual sports equipment, the construction of which is available to all lovers of breathtaking skiing the steepest slopes, has developed our reader from Magnitogorsk Sergei Chadin. Made of wood, the sleigh combines originality of design and ease of performance. For their manufacturing are required Board or thick plywood and a saw.

The secret of the sleigh that they are not two, as usual, and three runners. Rather, one main and two auxiliary; for something tells the author.

To do this, take a towel, wet it in hot water and wrap the warp. This makes the wood more pliable and easier to work (with the use of clamps or staples). You can then start making the rack-rails, we cut with some tolerance for processing, and cross members.
Finally, the Central and side racks connect with a finished ski. The final operation is the installation seat attached, and the runners with screws (screws) and glue. On top of him to lay a soft pillow of foam covered with canvas or leatherette.
