I am a total beginner at woodworking and toy making. This is a small animal train that I recently made and my wife painted. The plans came from a book. I cut it out via a combination of a scroll saw and bandsaw. They are from a pine 1×6, I made the wheels via a keyhole blade in the same 1×6 on a drill press and used 1/4” dowel rod for the axles.

Further details and higher resolution photos can be found on my wife’s blog:

Cool, animals on Segways.

The two of you did really well with these. They look like they would be a lot of fun.

Great train. If you haven’t found them yet there are some sites where you can get wheels just the size you want. I make all my custom truck and tractor wheels but for pull cars and the like the store bought variety work best for durability and ease.
