Simple project easy to make wooden toy train. There is a secret compartment in the boiler accessible from the cab.

Making a round cylinder for the boiler is a challenge if you don’t have access to a wood lathe.

I made the boiler cooper style. Who was it that suggested making a stack of disks and gluing them together. That would be quite solid, and you would lose the secret compartment inside the boiler.

Unless you can figure out how to make a series of rings instead. Easy enough on a wood lathe. Without one, I would do it the way I make large wooden wheels.

You may have other ideas, like using a tin can or a cardboard tube.
