Suggested by a customer. Her idea. Thanks Barbara.

Made from “rescue” lumber. Some cedar, some pine,and a little unknown. Even a tiny bit of bamboo for pegs holding the crossbar in the handle.

The wheels are just cedar fence boards that had a little vacation around the drill press. I even made a jig to get the spacing for the rim holes. The wheels are 5 inch diameter.

It is 10-1/4 inches tall—14 long and 5-1/4 wide. The side rails are 1-3/8 inches tall. As this is not meant for heavy transport purposes or play axle stubs are only 1/4 inch dowel. I use 3/8 or heavier dowel if they are an actual toy.

Kind of fun to just see what turned out. Even played with the turning lathe for the crossbar.
