I remember as as student making a very simple car wood toy. I haven't tried it again as an adult...but perhaps I should. The basic outline of the car was cut out on the bandsaw then holes for the axel were drilled. We used wooden wheels held on with an axel, through the drilled holes. Sanding and finishing were last. I think there was even a window. It was simple, functional and quick.

Boy it has been to long sice ai checked this site; Puzzles is the thing that got me started doing scrollsawing, and then ofcourse toys for the grandsons. I have just finished a 20" square checkerboard for the two grandsons, and a bunch of Christmas decorations as inserts (stack cut using 1/16' for my Chritsmas cards.
