This is the walker I created for my grandson.

The 5 Baltic plywood arms move up and down in a random order. It has 3 Jeeps. Padauk, Canarywood and Cocobolo. The 2 Star Wars At-Ats are Katalox. A bit over the top, I know. ;-))

The wheels are burnt Bamboo with weather strip tread and the sides are Bamboo. Uprights are Deeply colored Canarywood. The front crossmember/tone bar is Walnut. It has a Purpleheart storage area.

It sounds great when he is movin and a groovin across the tile floors throughout his parental unit's house.

Thanks again for sharing your baby walker project.

I am very interested in how the plywood arms move up and down.

It would be great to get a close up of the Jeeps and the Star Wars At-Ats.

I like the idea of weather strip treads for the wheels, I should try that sometime. The only kind of weather strip I can think of is the self adhesive foam type. Is that what you used?

You seem to have access to some exotic timbers. Most of my projects are made from pine or reclaimed bits and pieces I can find.

I hope you keep the projects coming, certainly very interesting.

Tony
