This is a simple little toy that most kids find fascinating. I made mine entirely of oak. It doesn’t do a lot other than roll and make a pleasant little clacking noise. No suggestions on dimensions as they can be anything you like. My “wheels” were about 5” in diameter.

That looks great. I think I might have to borrow your idea and make one for my son.

Bob, a nice quick toy to build for a little one. Now this is a project that I might just finish in a day. Thanks for posting.
