I wanted to make one of these for a while, and the kids grow fast, so I decided to finally spent some time on it.
It’s made of half inch plywood, construction grade, nothing too nice, but it works, and it was cheap.
The model is a mix of different ones I’ve found on the net. The only tricky part was how to attach the front fork to the body, I decided to sandwich a wedge of wood between the two parts of the body, and then drill a hole where the piece of threaded rod goes. It’s working fine and seems to resist the abuse of Felipe (3).
I couldn’t apply any finish yet, as soon as I’ve put the wheels to test if everything fits, Felipe said “my bike!!” and I couldn’t disasemlbe it again to paint it.
Maybe we let him pait it as he wants, it’s his bike anyway.
