This is a enlarged and somewhat modified version of the plans in Norm Marshall’s book of Wooden Toys. I made it for a lady who I use to work with, she said she would like a larger version of the stern wheeler that I had made from Norms Book. It is made out of mainly Oak with some Pine, Alder & Walnut for the railings and paddles.

I need to make one of those. I grew up on the river in Charleston, WV. where they have alot of those of all sizes. They even have a “Sternwheel Regatta” every year in August. food, attractions, live bands such as Miami sound machine and Charlie Daniels band to name a few. I also have pictures of alot of them too.
