Wooden Car Keepsake

Wooden Toy Car

This summer, I helped a family friend build a new base for his grandma’s dining room table.  The old one had become wobbly and unstable.  During the teardown, I kept a few hunks of wood, thinking I could use them for something in the future.  I eventually decided to make a little wooden car from one of the pieces both because it was his grandma’s table, and because they have a little boy.  The wheels and axles are store bought, though I should have probably made my own.

This was the original shape of the wood. The car has a few places where I left the the rough hewn saw marks and drilled holes that hint back to the piece’s original purpose.
