Inspired by DonB’s project post a couple days ago. I made this for my cousins boy who is turning five this weekend. Center section is 3/4 birch ply, body and fenders are 3/16 pine. I made a quick template by just cutting largest to smallest as I went. As each template was cut I retraced it again for a future template. In the last pic shows the axle assembly in 5/16” hardware less the wheels. I drilled an undersized hole and pressed in the long coupler nuts from both sides. It is painted with dark bronze hammered finish spray paint. During assembly I used high test locktite on the threads. This was a quick fun project and the inline skate wheels really take it for a ride with a good push down the street. Yes, I had to play with it before he gets his present;). Thank you for looking and a BIG thank you to DonB for his inspiration and fine work.
