Great Granddaughter's 1st Birthday Wagon

The wagon box was built using roasted maple - 5/16 inch dowel was used to secure sides to the floor.

The first wheel was cut using my circle jig and then used as a pattern for the other three wheels - router and 1/2 inch trim bit. The cherry 4x8 stock was resawed to 1.25 inches for the wheels and various sizes for the wagon frame, axle hubs, and handle.

The axles are 1.25 inch dowel with 5/16 inch dowel pins.

The front frame and axle hubs are attached to the box using 1.25 inch dowel.

The wide stance of the wheels was a safety feature so the wagon would not tip when our

great granddaughter climbed into it.

Finish: Danish Oil
