Quad Bike from “Wooden Toys and Plans” formally Woodworkingdownunder plans

Tony Slattery a LJ’s member who owns whats now called “Wooden Toys and Plans” website sent me a copy of his latest wooden toy plan, A Quad Bike…

It’s similar design to that of the Motorbike I made a month or two ago, Motorbike from Woodworkingdownunder plans. This plan is simple & strong ready for fun and play.

In my opinion theses are great wooden toys that Tony has designed, as they are pretty well bullet proof BUT best of all the plans are free, THANK YOU Tony and congratulations on such a brilliantly designs wooden toy.

Here’s the link to the free plans….

http://www.wooden-toy-plans.com/wooden-toy-motorcycle.html

This first set of prototypes which I’ve done are made from the following timbers:
Bodies made from Oregon, Red Gum, a mystery timber;
Sides from Cypress Pine, Spotted Gum;
The wheels are from a piece of 60plus year old hardwood that came out of my re-roofing;
Plus 3-4 coats of Gloss Clear Polyurethane….

It took about 4hours to do each of the three Quad Bikes making the template and cutting the wheels, but I suspect it’d be a little quicker next time.

Cheers, crowie

Looking good, I see you have some,... is it nylon or HDPE washers for anti friction thrust bearings.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

G’Day Tony, I use stainless steel flat washers to compensate for the wheel dish then add a nylon flat washer to ensure free rolling of the wheel against the body. Cheers, Peter

Crowie Put on your thinking cap and a 3 wheeler wouldn’t be hard to make with those parts, methinks.
