Steam Bending A Wood Toboggan Part 2
In our final episode of the year I finish the construction and assembly of a traditional steam bent wood toboggan. The assembly was done using #12 stainless flat head screws that were counter sunk leaving the heads flush with the bottom of the sled. After assembly the entire toboggan was finished with 2 coats of West System epoxy using their 207 clear hardener, sanded with 320 grit paper and final topcoats were applied with Pettit V-975 Satin urethane Varnish.
As I mentioned in the video, this interior varnish was a pleasure to work with. It was very easy to apply (either by brush or spray), flowed out beautifully and cured to a hard satin finish that really accentuates the wood. For this project it was EXACTLY what I was looking for.
