One for my little girl, and one for my baby boy.
The car is made with pine and sleeper. The horse and carriage is made only with pine (I ran out of sleeper )

Both given a clear varnish sealing.
I got the idea from the internet, saw the picks and downloaded some images. I cannot remember the site now, But thanks for the ideas.

Thanks for looking.

My daughter and son would love them. What is “sleeper”? I did a google search and didn’t come up with the answer.

Edit: I may have found it…railway ties??

Thanks for the compliments.

“cdkock”, Yes, Railway ties. I know it as sleeper wood. A lovely wood to work with. A bit hard, but beautiful wood.
If and when I get my hands on a piece, I keep it safe and treasure it until the perfect project comes up.
