That's some great looking winter fun Bill!  Did you bend the ash for the toboggan yourself?  If so, any pics, tips, hints on how to do it?  I've had realy hit and miss results with bending steamed wood.

Yes I bent the Ash , I will try and post some pics of the process . You have to keep away from any defects and have good straight grain .
