A few month ago I started building this toys and joys model. Most of the work was to make the wheels. A lot of the parts can move. I used ash,padouk and oak. Below some more pictures.
Thanks for watching.

Joe Wikipedia: In Canada, as in the US, tire is the older spelling, but both were used in the 15th and 16th centuries (for a metal tire). Tire became the settled spelling in the 17th century but tyre was revived in the UK in the 19th century for rubber/pneumatic tyres, possibly because it was used in some patent documents, though many continued to use tire for the iron variety. The Times newspaper was still using tire as late as 1905. For the verb meaning “to grow weary” both American and British English use only the tire spelling
Dee1 Thanks for your help and postman activities.

Awsome build Duthy, I love your contrasting timber choice. There is nothing more I can add to the wheels that hasn’t been said.It’s a shame you will be remembered forever for your skill at wheel design rather than your good looks.
For the verb meaning ”to grow weary” both American and British English use only the tire spelling
