Great job. I actually just purchased a Wood magazine that has plans for one of these in it. I am actually in the middle of making a chess board for the first time then I seen these plans. It was too late to change my board. Great execution and great job on the wood selection. I can’t wait to get mine going!

,....amost got away with it.

The Ute in the 90 deg drive way gave it away !!

I want to know what sort of tyres you use I want a grip like that.
Come to think of it I could store some wood working machines on my wall if I retro fitted them out

Great job! I have been planning on making something like this for a while and you gave me some great ideas. One question, what is the gap on the bottom for?

Have your say...
