One of my books is about how to build toys – “Building Heirloom Toys”. I’ve built a few of these jennies for neighborhood kids, but I kept this latest one. It’s made of mahogany and hard maple. I used store-bought wheels on this one, I usually turn them on the mini-lathe. This was just a fun couple of hours on a rainy day.

-- I did measure it twice, it's still too short.
