This is a prototype for the Kids Only Co. It is all cherry wood construction except the blue plastic pedals and the rubber band around the front tire. All painted up with glossy paint to look like a plastic toy.

I did make an adult size (wood) big wheel. It was on ” Live With Kelly” Go on google and type in Josh Groban rides big wheel, and you will see the one I built as he rides it around on stage. It is also the one you see in my profile picture. Kids Only Co. hired me to build this one as an advertisement tool for a large toy show in N.Y. city.

Did you use a CNC on that front wheel, or are you just very good? Great looking big wheel. Thank you forsharing.

Nice job. How long does a prototype like this take to make? You must have an interesting job.

No WAY! I said to myself – Why would that plastic toy be a project. I’m amazed.
-- Thanks for all the lessons!

I don’t have much for pictures before the paint on most of my project, but if you look in my projects and click on the balance bike you will see a couple of those before the paint.
