Lets help this little boy learn to walk with a Block Cart was the request from the therapists…

My youngest grandson is 10.5 months old and inspite of a three very difficult months in ICU plus a lot of ups & downs, he’s now starting to slowly catch up; he’s a true blessing.

He still has a long road ahead of him with way too many doctors appointments and surgery’s but he’s a blessing to so many folk who’ve being praying for his good health.

The Block Cart is smaller than store bought ones along with being deeper being made from Aussie hardwood.
The finish is homemade WOP, 30% tung oil, 40% clear satin polyurethane & 30% turps. I’ve used is 1/4” steel for the axle along with axle caps, unbreakable.

Nice cart. I have to agree, building that cart will have him moving along easier. Those little ones love to push things around. You’re a great grandpa.

Looks like he is going to be hard to keep up with soon. My grand daughter spent a couple weeks in the NICU. She is now 20 mo. Look out still a little small but climbing on everything and you can’t keep up with her. Looks like you will have the same problem very soon.
