Here’s a miniature red wagon I made primarily from ipe and red oak. The basic wagon is made from ipe with red stain applied to the sides and bottom and black paint applied to the axle assemblies. The wheels are cut from a red oak dowel, then painted black and white with wheels centers made from red pieces of Fimo. (Fimo is a polymer modeling material that can be shaped then fired in a home oven). The wagon handle is made from extruded aluminum then painted black. Axles are pieces of steel wire. The wagon is fully functional working the same as a full size child’s wagon.

In the back of the wagon are three flower arrangements I made from Fimo with two of the flower pots being sewing thimbles and one flower pot made from Fimo. Pictured in one of the photographs is a US dime shown to give a perspective of scale size.

That is SO sweet Darrell! I work with polymer clay as well as wood, so was very pleased to see your combination put to such inspired imagination with this project!!
