I made these for my 2 grande daughters for X-mas . I was very happy to see how much they liked them . It first one is maple, with birch dowels for the bars, mahogany and pine for the wheels, and pine for the horses. #2 Is mahogany, birch dowels , maple or pine for trim , mahogany horses, wheels are maple and mahogany. Also made circus animals out of white pine and mahogany . That is what I like the best about making toys, the smiles on my grand babies faces. Its nice to sell a few but I have grande babies from 3 yrs up (26 of them ) and 6 great grand babies. Them and my kids, and the boss (My wife) are my favorite testers .By the way I do respect all my fellow wood workers

Those are really great and conjure up memories of visiting the circus as a kid. For better or worse, seems the circus is a thing of the past. Nice work.

These are really nice Bud and a perfect gift for the little ones. Are you going to cut out animals to be in the cages?

First I would like to say sorry to everyone that went to my site. I had the wrong site posted the right one . The other one was the first one I tried to build. Luck for me , my wood working may be better than my site building. The new one works , but not set up all the way yet. Still setting up sale page.
