Just waiting for father Christmas to deliver to my Granddaughter who turned 2 end of August.

I saw this idea on Facebook on one of the woodworking groups. I asked if he had a plan, but he didn’t. He did however share photos from all the different angles en I drew a plan with SketchUp.

The wheels are made from a species of hard reclaimed pallet wood.

I laminated the wheels in a 2 ply

Ready to drill the spoke holes

Making them round with my circle sanding Jig

This was my first attempt with steam bending. It’s not perfect but I’m happy how it came out and it is good enough for this project.

Thanks for looking and as always comments welcome.

Great build. I like the way you do things, for instance, steaming in your kitchen, bet your wife wasnt too keen on that. And Your shop looks nice and “clean,” the way a shop should look.

That is why I did the steaming when she wasn’t at home :) :)

Nice project, well crafted, enjoyed seeing your jig too. Something that will always be treasured. Christmas brings the best of us out, working and giving.

Very nice. A new family heirloom. I’ll make a suggestion. You might want to put some rubber around the wooden wheels to save the floors and the wheels if played with outside.
