Hi Guys and Gals
Finally it is done, although I have to admit I don’t spend as much time in the shop as I used to.
It was a nice project I got stuck once but my friend Dutchy came to my rescue,
It will be a nice addition to my little collection.
The wood is dark walnut and soft maple.
Thanks again Dutchy

That is awesome!!

As a guy that has a hard time making 45 miters look good.. it’s crazy to me how to even make this..
Intricate cuts.. i’d be missing fingers for sure..

Boy what a bunch of nice comments , I am very proud to read them
How long did it take , a couple months but I don’t spend all day in the shop anymore
I am in my late 70s ,and I can tell you the wheels alone took at least a couple days.
toys and joys plans usually pretty good, although I did get confused in one part of this build
not a big deal I was just not paying attention to a small detail of the plan.
Again thanks for the nice responses.
