You may have seen this project on my Connie's blog if you follow her.

This is what I built my 1st granddaughter
when she turned 2 years old.
Following are photos that will take you from plans
to finished project.
I made a base for my router that extended out about a foot to one side. This way to cut the wheels I was able to screw the router base directly to the wood, turning the router itself into a compass. You can't get an any more perfect circle than that.
To cut out the spokes I had to drill starter holes then insert the scroll saw blade through each hole, cut it, then unclasp the blade, moving to the next hole. A little tedious but it was a labor of love.
In the original plans, the handle bars are supported only by the center post. Not strong enough for these energetic girls, not to mention their play date friends. So I decided to run the fork tubes clear up to the handle bars.
It was well worth the effort to build something that will be a family heirloom.
Thanks for stopping by my blog.
