    I finished the toboggan last night. It took a little over 2 hours, plus time to oil the crossbars. Your instructions make it easy.
    Only thing I might add is that the 1/2″ countersink seemed a bit big (except for seating the rivet). I used one of those dreaded 2 ‘n 1 drill and countersink bits–must’ve been a #8.
