The Frames are already sanded and have a light coat of varnish, and were made in Maine by Snowcraft who went out of business years ago. A light sanding with medium or fine grit paper gets the small bumps and dust off and may make the varnish coats smoother. DO NOT try and use the holes drilled in the frames with the nylon lace! The knots of our pattern that go around the frames will cover these holes.
The kit comes with lacing, directions, and a pair of Snowcraft frames. This will make a fine pair of snowshoes. Bindings can be purchased separately, click the LINK
