Today I’m pleased to present you this wooden balance bike made of ash.
It was build on the base of 12’’ wheels made of plastic, but all the frame is in solid wood.

You can download its plan and learn more about its building in the howto (in french but there a lot of pictures !).

Looks like a ton of fun – both to build and watch the new owner use. Thanks for sharing!

Many thanks for your comments ! I’m too tall to ride it but I hope it was a “ton of fun” for its new owner ;)

Wonderful build. Really well done.

And as I have found out, it is really a good way to learn to ride a bike. Learn to balance first and pedal later. Works a charm.

Love it,
