While making the IKEA Draisienne, we also made this sled, using the same principles. Two Frosta stools hacked into something else, without any waste. Andreas haven't made one of his famous manual for this one, but since it is pretty simple, I'll explain...

The plastic parts are 3D printed on a Makerbot Replicator. You can either upload them from leFabShop's thingiverse account : http://www.thingiverse.com/LeFabShop/designs or order them from us at www.lefabshop.fr

p.s : special applause for this guy in UK who had the idea long before us : http://www.ikeahackers.net/2011/05/frosta-sledge.html

It will be more fun if you do this with a friend, or someone from your family. We actually think that this is maybe the best father and son DIY project ever made since the tree house. ;p

Haha,
It is back.
As weird as it may look, we didn't know this project before the sled was entirely completed. We were stunned by the coincidence at the moment we decided to publish it. After all, how many different designs can you come up with when you decide to design a sled out of the frosta stool. So, we at first decided not to publish the hack. We used our energy to make the Draisienne look even more awesome with a full manual, but left the sled as it was, with no further details on the fabrication. No problem for the credits. Morris's sled definately came first. But this one does look much better : http://www.detnk.com/node/1679
Okay then :)

Excellent project,......... we don't get snow every year in Ireland, but I'm going to build one of these for my niece and nephew to use when we do get a bit of snow in the Dublin Mountains, a pity we can't sled or toboggan on peat or rain LOL !
