This project took roughly 2 half days in the shop, the glue up and working wooden cylinders took most of that time .

As you can see there are a lot of parts to this project some hadn’t been cut out yet at the time of the picture.

during the assembly process

making sure all the cylinders move freely

added the cab with opening door

That is a very nice set of toys.

You did not mention the destination for the toys. Did you make them for your children or do you sell toys?
