Model T toy car. This is the first project in The Great All-American Wooden Toy Book. This is a classic project based on a classic car.
I turned all the round parts out of Walnut instead of using hole saws. The trunk and engine are of Alder, and the rest is Maple.
It was a fun project that got interrupted several times by dire events out of my control. (See previous project) So it took several weeks to get back to it after it was almost completed.
There’ll be a few more of these as I’ve cut several sets of parts out. Hopefully it’s the first of several projects in this book. Certainly have to make the Pickup and the Tanker based on this same design.

Great looking Tin Lizzy! I like the wood combo and the overall character of it!

Although it can’t compete with sofisticated wooden cars, trucks and other heavy maschines, it is extra adorable and cute. Sure it would be a challenge for me to make it.

Thanks all!
Yep, this is pretty “cartoony cute” isn’t it?

I didn’t have anyone in mind when I started these, so I suppose it’s just for the big kid in me. My wife WAS rather amused as I putt-putted it across the carpet last night.

Thanks Crowie. That’s quite a compliment coming from a master on these things.
It’s only now that I’ve done three of these, that I realize this first one isn’t completed. I forgot to cut the angle on the top!

Jim, I love making wooden toys for play and in saying that I’m always beefing up & personalizing the toys plan so things that are missed or added just show a craftsman did the job!!
