This was a fun 1 day build following thewoodwhisperer.com charity build and was blogged here.
I made this with the help of my 4 yo daughter which only made this more fun than it would have otherwise. I let her cut out the paper templates, cut the handles, paint it and put it all together as well as test drive it and decorate it (as can be seen in the pictures) while I did the wood cuts and shaping.
Main tools used were a jigsaw and a router to duplicate parts and to chamfer all the edges.
Pre-laminated pine panel (3/4”x24”x72”)
3/4” diameter oak dowel for the handles
2 coats of dewaxed shellac
Fun build, fun ride, works real well.
