I love it Jan. I was in fact wondering when you would be putting those guides on since reading your last blog. I love all the little details and your jigs. Much more difficult than making a clock!

You have patience beyond believe with making all those little parts it would drive me crazy but a lot of the process and jigs are so useful and applicable to other project as well .
I just hope I can remember all this when I need it .

Darn good work Dutchy! Now I know I don’t ever want to make one of TAJ’s toys with tracks. (-:
