Well, he finally managed to break it. He was riding hard and snagged the tail on a stool. Not that the wood was what let go not the glue. I thought aboput this a lot and could not come up with anything that would with stand this.

That's the beauty of wood easy to replace. [thumb]

Looks like a couple of 1/2" diameter dowels through the seat and into the tail could make this a break-proof tail. What do you think?

I'm sure it would be stronger. This was a bit of a complicated accident. He was ridding hard and caught the tail on a stool made from 2x8 hardwood.

If I make another one I'll probably do this. I could do it now. Drill the holes from the bottom, insert the dowels and cut them flush.

I do want to make a second one.
