Too cool of a toy for the kids not to make one after seeing others on here. Here’s my version.
Pictures show the progression as I added pieces. Last picture is the finished project with the pieces cut from a dowel and stained. Added a couple coats of wipe-on poly.
I think next time instead of painting the grooves, I’ll just add a thin inlay. The painting was a PITA. Got the stuff all over. It is colorful, though, and that’s what i was going for.
Biggest problem now is my wife tells me i should make 3 toys for each of my kids families for Christmas. Six kiddos, that’s 18 toys. Hmmm, better get started early this year.
