Hi all
Came across this plan in a pile of papers I had forgotten that I had it so I thought I would give it a go so spent a day in the shop making it, I make an addition to the plans by using standard axle pins to strengthen the joints on the end opposite the ramp  
Fun time mini Noah's Ark.jpgI used European cherry for sides, American black walnut for ends and knob, ash for cabin sides, sapele for roof, maple for deck and various hardwoods for the animals let natural and finished with Cynthia's paste wax.

Another fine job, thanks for posting.
I am glad your post detailed the types of wood used and for what.
That information really helps the members see what a finished product looks like using the various woods.
The magic bee's wax does make the natural colour of the woods pop.

Are you kidding me Johnkc
   I am so envious of your ability and how quickly you can get a project done.
If I did the Ark, it would take a week.
   Wonderful Job.  I just love seeing your work.
Thanks for Sharing.
   Only a Day, I can only daydream of being that quick, efficient and producing such fine work.
Hats off to you.

I am thrilled with the new photos. Your workmanship is impeccable. This is truly a beautiful piece. Did you use a router to round the edges of the animals?

I used a Dremel mini tool in a home made router table with a dremel router bit to shape the animal edges and then a quick sand to remove burs
