The leftover from cutting the tires, I cut the down with another hole saw and use them spacers on my trucks between the tires and frames. A lot of plans call for metal washers for spacers, but I like to use wood for everything I can on wooden toys.

Couldn’t you have just simply re-cycled the old mess from your previous blog…

Would save a fortune on bin liners…
