When I first saw this here http://lumberjocks.com/projects/57091, it was a project I knew I wanted to do. I did not however get the plans, I just kinda figured it out from the pictures. The dowels; 1” for the ‘T’ handle, 5/8 “for the shaft. 1 1/4” for the cross piece and 1/2” for the cage. The wheels are 8” out of curly cherry. From wheel to wheel is 9”. Those dowels for the cage were dyed with regular ole food coloring, red and blue. The outer supports are 3/4” oak butcher block donated by my brother from a kitchen remodel he did years ago. I stained that and the rest of the dowels with Traditional Cherry from Minwax. I purchased the wooden balls online they are 2 1/4”.
Fun, fast build; a gift to my nephew for Christmas. He is the son of the brother that donated the butcher block.
