I made this one night when I couldn’t sleep. I got the idea from a book The Big Book of Weekend Woodworking by John A. & Joyce C. Nelson. Good idea book, by the way.

I simplified the project to suit my midnight shop session. It is made from an old piece of scrap 2×4 that I had laying around. You can still see some of the silvery weathered wood on that old 2x. I painted the wheels on and there is no finish on the piece. I did this one a handful of years ago.

If you could add this logo to it, I bet you’ll get even more compliments.

Well done, Brett. Some of my most impressive creativity came from the wake of insomnia. :)
