Thank you ladies and gents..

The timber in the wheels is “spotted gum” outers and the centre’s are “Huon Pine”...
The rear wheels are very heavy.

The two photos are a “phoney photo” attempt to show the front and the top view…

The jig is a Ducky special

... “ducky”... Jan and Bruce…

crowie, it’s a worry when your inspiration comes from a man who sits down in his workshop, a Dutchman in painted wooden shoes and a duck that has been certified insane….

At least something more has washed off… other than our incredible good looks!

crowie, maybe you should put old bluey in the middle to stop him weighing the picture to the left
