I've got a plan from an older Wood magazine issue to make a toboggan. They
use ash in there project, would maple a good substitute for bending? The
strips will be cut 1/16" in thickness and will be bent around a 16" form to
make the front of the toboggan.
Depends what you have available. The main consideration is to use split
timber (not sawn) that's as green as you can get it. I'd always use
something I felld myself for this sort of task, and then I'd bend it
that same week.
Choice of species is a minor issue - not everything works, but you
should have something local that would.
