I made this in Afghanistan several months ago when I only had a Proxxon scroll saw and a dremmel. The wood came from wood cigar boxes, scraps of wood, and coffee stir sticks from the DEFAC. I made the wheels when I was home on R&R the time before. I now have my wheel jigs in Kabul. Totally from my head, the design just grew into this Princes Wagon for my 4 year old granddaughters Christmas this year. Betty ordered a couple of unicorns to pull it.
