Vintage Sled NightstandDecember 27th, 2008 in member junk
While driving through the Berkshires in Massachusetts I came upon an estate sale at an abandoned dairy farm. Immediately this old snow sled caught my eye and I bought it. The women who had lived on the farm for 60 years had a story for every item she was selling.
Her brother-in-law was a toy salesmen and this was the sled he carted around to show his customers. The story went on for forty-five minutes (like this description) and all I could think about was what else was in that house and barn!
Anyway, I made a base for the sled and turned it into a nightstand for my son’s bedroom. It’s designed to look like a “Sled Display” in an old toy shop. The base is wood with miscellaneous metal straps and bars. I cut a piece of plywood in the shape of the logo on the sled body and painted it to match…“COMET”.
