    For each of my children's 2nd Christmas I have made them a more substantial wood project. So far I have built a rocking horse, a mini-kitchen and now for my third child I thought a car would suit him as he LOVES anything with wheels. I initially thought of building a car that he could sit in...
  2. Fish Toy Wagon

    This is a tribute to the lake I love to fish in. A crane flies overhead. The fish swim in a frenzied circle as the cart is pushed. A daredevil lure is snagged on the log and a turtle is coming up for air. This works with a simple friction wheel on the back axle that makes the turntable...
