I found this old pattern a while back and have made a couple that I just left natural wood, usually oak or maple.

These two ended up being made from about 4 different types of wood so I decided to try my hand at following the color chart on the pattern.

NICE! They look great. My guess is they really come alive when you start pushing them. Well done.

Now that’s on old fashion good honest toy, hand made wooden craftsmanship at it’s best….

I’d have to make it with a little thicker timber to try to ensure it was “grandson” proof….
