In June my 4 year old grandson asked me to build him a go kart. I looked online for plans but didn’t find anything other then “soap box” carts. I wanted to build a pedal kart. So basically I just made this thing up off the top of my head. I had to be a little innovative with the pedals and steering assembly but I managed to get it all working. I finally finished it yesterday. The grandson and the spouse are going to paint it tomorrow. That should be interesting..lol.
I think the biggest boasting feature of the kart is the one piece solid walnut steering wheel. They just don’t build them like that anymore eh? :)
It was a fun project and took some imagination. The most important tool in this project was my Dremel Multi Max for making those post assembly cuts.
