    Looks pretty good, I like the wood selections. How did you make the wheels?

    The wheels were cut out roughly on my bandsaw and sanded round using a bolt thru the middle placed in my drillpress. I then cut out the center holes with a hole saw. I then made the inserts on my scrollsaw and glued them into the wheels. The wheels are southern yellow pine and the inserts are walnut. The body is mahogany and the roof is southern yellow pine. The bumpers are teak. I get all my wood from a millwork who sells me their " shorts" at very reasonable prices.

    Very nice! Curious, how do you manage work holding for those small pieces when doing final shaping/sanding/etc?

    Very carefully. For the most part I try to do the shaping using a larger piece and when most of the shaping is done I cut the piece out and, as I said do the final shaping very carefully.
