A Wildwood Design’s pattern from 2001. Thought I would give it a try. 41 hours total, 132 pieces, 1691 internal cuts. I used a variety of wood; walnut, red oak, maple, cherry, baltic birch and padauk. It was a fun build one I got the 2 large wheels cut (@22 hours…). The motor works nicely and I will add some LED lights to highlight it. Thanks for looking!

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
