Looking for ideas on making an ice fishing sled to carry gear. What features are good to have? I have seen one that has metal flashing incorporated so that a hibachi grill can be fired up on the ice. What materials are good? I want to make it highly functional yet small and light. I am thinking masonite or luann (mahogany) for the sides, with 1x2 for the frame. The runners could be 1x3, shaved to a curve at the front. I am thinking of tacking strips of sheet metal about 2" wide to the bottom of the wood runners, to serve as a ski feature for better sliding/planing on soft snow. I also want a real clever hand warming feature, like an insulated box to keep my Coleman lantern in. p.s. This will be pulled by hand, not towed behind a "sled" (snowmobile).
