This is an impressive wood toy set.  I especially like the natural wood tones.

That looks great, Peter! Maybe I'll do mine in natural stains.

Well--winter is here and I got a chance to spend some time in the shop sorting thru the enchanted scrap pile to build the cars n trucks from Jakes Garage N Diner!  Having a lot of "just right size" pieces of 3/4"  and being too small to run thru the mill to 1/2" I decided to run with what I got!  I like my toy cars on the "Robust" side--fat!  Here is the start of the assembly of the cars with fat fenders and wheels. I like to make all the wheels on my toys out of the scraps using a hole saw on the drill press.  For this build I cranked out 100  1 1/2" wheels  for 6 sets of cars n trucks.20170112_170812_resized_1.jpg 20170112_171440_resized.jpg 20170111_125308_resized.jpg 20170111_125318_resized.jpg 20170111_125335_resized.jpg 20170111_131056_resized.jpg

I like the extra cut out for the window and the robustness is more rod looking

These look great guys.
I have built 2 sets of these over the xmas break.
They were a good project to get me started on 1.5" stock on my new scrollsaw.
Something my old saw couldn't cope with.

Just having some technical issues with transferring photos from my phone. 
Will post shortly.

Hope everyone had a good xmas and new year.

Back to work next week... ho hum.

Cheers

Finally got all the sets completed and sent off to my little engineers. Almost forgot to save one out to take a pretty picture.  Enjoy and thanks John for the plans set! 15995687_1426376777397284_1812535143_n.jpg
