How to build a simple wood toy car.
With the increasing popularity of 4-wheel drive off-road vehicles, it was only a matter of time before we came out with our “wood” version. The scale of this toy is fairly accurate, so the finished product looks very much like a real 4 x 4. In fact, you may be a bit reluctant to hand this fine looking toy over to junior. Don’t worry though, it’s built tough and will take punishment, just like the genuine article.
We built our 4 x 4 using cherry and walnut, but most any wood will do. It is best to select a dark wood for the blocks (A and B), as this will lend the wheel wells and grill an authentic look.
