Dear Lee Valley,

I thought you might like to see the success our Boy Scout troop had using your Veritas® Power Tenon Cutters. The photo shows the Klondike sled the boys built for this year's annual Klondike Derby. They build a new sled each year for the competition.

The boys made this sled in about eight hours with only guidance and supervision from the adult leaders. The skis are split from a single log with the uprights through-tenoned and wedged from the bottom (using a 1" tenon cutter). The horizontal members are tenoned and wedged using a 5/8" cutter.

Needless to say, the boys received many compliments on their fine sled and are looking forward to making some camp gadgets using the tenon cutters this summer. As a side note, the boys love the shavings that come off the tenon cutters, as they have found they make excellent tinder for fire starting after they have been dried.

Thanks for making such fine tools,
Surry, New Hampshire
