I made these cable cars a couple years ago after my Aunt asked me to make one for my nephew (her grandson). Figured I’d make a few extra since my friends were all having kids (and saved one for my now 9 month old daughter). This was a super fun project to make and got the plans from Shopsmith:

Thank you for all the kind comments! I’m looking forward to getting back into woodworking after taking a break during pregnancy and now trying to make up for the sleep ;). Looking for more toys to make my little one :p.
