This is a race car I made for our great-grandson's third birthday.

It is from a Wood Magazine pattern in 1995 and his uncle got one like it for his third birthday in that same year. The rubber wheels are from Rockler about the same date. I don't know if they are even still available.

Not too active in WW these days but some of the grandchildren want outdoor Christmas decorations so things might pick up.

Have Fun!

John

That's a great job. Like the lines and the finish is perfect!

Thanks for the comments.

The finish is five coats of wipe-on poly.

That is a neat car and very nicely done. My grandkids are too old for that kind of toy but I may have to give it some consideration for our Toys for Tots campaign.

No track, it just goes where the imagination takes it.
