SLEIGH FACTSHEET & WALKAROUND

The most often asked question in 2009 by the children was, "Santa, Where is your sleigh?" So, I built a Sleigh that was Special, Magical and Exciting for children and adults alike. My Sleigh is for children from 1-100 years old. The Sleigh is built from a single tree and took over 1600 hours to construct. The total cost of the sleigh? Out of pocket - $13,000 + wood + 1600 hours of labor & shop time = just shy of $60,000! In 2010 the Sleigh was appraised at $68,000.
