Last month Steve Good posted his pictures and plans for a circus wagon. I just knew I would have to make one… just because even at 75 I still have some kid in me. Well I finished mine today. This was a much more time consuming project than I anticipated. It was fun. I added a couple things. Like a gentleman in Scroll Saw Village I add a second pair of horses. I like the look of his so, me too… I also added a baby elephant at the end hanging on to his mamma’s tail. I just had to do it.

If I made another one of these, I think I would cut it smaller like at maybe 70% of the original size. It takes up a lot of room, not sure what I will do with it now that it is done….

Looks great. I like the additions. I follow Steve Good myself. He has helped me with many projects.
Will children today remember the circus?

A very neat project.

Toy making gives US a chance to play with them.

I have 4 toy tow trucks in process currently. I am going to test drive every one of them too!

They are all from T & E designs==(Means no real pattern used—just whatever the scraps involved wanted to be).

They are being constructed totally from “rescued” wood. The wheel axles will be new wood, though. The winches are fire wood rescued.

Sometimes you just gotta do what ya gotta do.
Love it.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Wonderfully done. It’s never to late to enjoy bringing back good memories. Wish I were 75 again!
