Just had to do something today that was fun and to try out my new circle jig for my disc sander. So I made this for a wonderful young couple that I had the privilege of presiding at their Wedding Ceremony several years ago. Now they are celebrating their baby girl’s first birthday. And besides it’s been two weeks since I have built anything and I had the itch! Next projects are my RAS saw upgrade and then building a new table for my drill press.

Oh come on now! How many trips around the car did you make with that before the road test was complete? I know, test and development.

Very Nice, I’m sure she will enjoy it.

Nice, in looking at the picture I wondered what it was seeing only the top of the handle. Very cool gift.

Not really sure why but you have to click on and enlarge the pic to see all of it. Sorry, not much of a photographer.

Sorry to be so long answering back. Thanks for all the kind comments. As a beginner they are very encouraging. The dimensions are:

Wheels: 5.5”
Cage width: 8 7/8”
Handle is 18”
Yoke is 9.5”
Side bars: 5.5”
All dowels are 3/8 in the cage and handle is 5/8
Inside the cage are 4 1×1 painted squares and 1 small (1”) jingle bell.

The plan is available through Cherry Tree Toys.
Good luck gfadvm.
