Just in time. This project tried to kick my butt! It was hard, it was huge. Lessons learned. Don’t ‘cheap out’, you pay for plans, do what they say. It is easier in the long run. The wheels go around. The front tire turns left and right, slightly. It is very cool. Matthew is 2. Hope he likes it.

I know that this is sturdy because I took it for a ‘test drive’.

“hope” he likes it????? Can’t imagine any child (or adult) who wouldn’t love this.
Well done!!

Very cool and looks like a lot of patience needed (My wife says I would fail in that department). Very nice.

I think the plans were from Cherry Tree. I am no home right now. I will double check when I get back in a couple of days.
