From a piece of hardwood 1-3/4 inch stock, 5 x 6 inches, and a piece of 3/8 inch by 4-1/8 inch long dowel, you can make this streamlined roller in a short time. By laying out squares on the line drawing below, you can increase the size of the toy as big as you like.

This is a picturesque sled and well adapted for winter hikes and overnight camping trips. This sled is not intended for coasting but for hauling equipment only.
This is the type of sled used by the Eastern Arctic Eskimos of Canada. Runners are usually made of spruce, split out of logs or of planks bought from a local trading post.

Eskimos prefer cord to rawhide because their dogs will not chew it.
