Car Carrier again left natural wood and finish is Cynthia's paste wax apart from wheels which are acrylic varnish I make the cab in thicker stock as I find it more stable children's eyes light up when they receive this toy keeps them occupied for hours its a joy to see.

Beautiful set John..
Why the varnish on the wheels vs. the wax finish ?

Wow Johnkc
Your easy basics car carrier is just great.
I now want to take another crack at making them and leaving in plane wood.
I just started making templates to cut out multiples for craft shows, and I think this would be great.
I have made three, but painted them all, but looking at yours I think it will be good to leave them plane wood.
Thanks for the post and the ideas.

Hi blackwolf thank you for your comments
the varnish on the wheels in my opinion is more hard wearing than the wax
especially if the toy is played with outside just my opinion

Wow, this is really a great use of two tone wood color. With being all natural wood, it seems to elevate what wood toys are all about. It is very clean and a great toy.
