I just made these of Vintage toys and all are made out of the same woods…some also have parts that are from 2×4 pine that i cut down to size with the table saw. I used several different tools…My first tool that my dad gave me years ago- and old delta band saw, ridgid table saw, ridgid sliding compound miter saw and an old drill press as well as the rockwell blade runner ( The circle attachment was used for making the wheels.)I also used my ridgid drill. I found some old pictures and patterns from 1919 – 1930(some kinda hard to figure out) and some I changed because theirs did not make much since. and drew out my patterns on some matboard and I then made a more permanent pattern in scrap plywood. I then used some 3/4 cabinet grade plywood to cut out my parts. Wheels were cut from cedar. All handles pivot the wheels… I am selling these as Decorative Reproduction Vintage Toys.
