    My DIY ski pulk

    Hello, Here is my latest DIY project.
    A Ski sled/pulk.

    it's made with more sturdiness then feather-weight in mind,

    The sides and back and supporting frame is made of pine, and bottom and front cover is oil treated Masonite, the pull rods are electrical tubing with rope in them and the waist belt is an old weightlifter belt with added haul loops.

    A old bike bag is fitted on the front, its expandable and can carry aprox. 25 liters but takes up very little room when folded up, it houses a knife, some spare rope and means to make fire in the folded up mode, like in the pictures here.

    The "Skies" are metal reinforced pine wood studs.

    its aprox. 180 x 55 cm

    hope you enjoy it

    Thanks! it glides reel good on snow, and ice. the smoothness of the Masonite makes it easy to pull. and the metal "skies" provides good stability.
    Its quite heavy to turn if you not make the turn reel big in diameter.
    Yes , some snow would be nice.
