My wife found several pull toys online that she wanted to buy for our five month old daughter. Since I got a scroll saw for Christmas I said, “I can make those.” I asked my wife to choose the pull toy she liked the most and I just free handed the shape on a piece of 1/2” pine board that I had laying in the garage.
This was my third real project to make with my scroll saw. I even cut the wheels with the scroll saw and used my drill press with a sanding drum to round them off the best I could. The rear wheels have an “off-center” axle to simulate a hopping rabbit when it is pulled across the floor. (I tried to show this with the difference between picture one and two) In an effort to keep the toy safe to chew on, my wife used tea to stain the wood a bit of a darker shade of brown.
Thanks for checking out my project!
