This is made from basswood with woodburning for the door, wording, and the “tires” – all cut on the scroll saw by my husband from a sketch I made adapted from others on the internet. I put together the box from pine. Glued and nailed it to a piece of plywood. Still need to add the hooks for hanging on the wall. This will be a gift for our nephew. Nice to do a “team project” from both his uncle and aunt.

Very nice design and build. Simple but so useful and elegant.
