Here are some scooters I made. Made from 1/2” plywood. I am going to try using MDF for the sides to save on the priming and sanding 3 times to get a smooth finish. The stripes are cut vinyl from a sign company. Maybe some day I will have the plans for sale.

Hey, those are awesome! I bet my kids would love those. Do make plans for sale, I’d bet a lot of people would buy them.

Very creative. I’ll bet the little ones will love them. If you put a number on the sides they can be race cars.

All said before me. From your excellent pictures, some of us can make similar and our own plans too. Thanks for the idea.

Very professionally made, looks great. I was wondering if the floor shouldn’t be cut out for their feet to scoot it around

It is smaller than it looks, they can reach the ground on the outside. Next I want to make one look like a fire truck, and my friend painted one to look like a John Deere tractor.
