Have plenty of wood screws and glue on hand, and a few hinges.
Drill through middle of the wooden wheels so the dowels will fit
tight. Paint the wooden headlights and wheels.
STEP 3. Glue and screw the spacers to the bottom plywood, using the dowels to align the spacers properly. Leave the dowels loose. There should be 1" of the ends of the bottom plywood still showing at each end.
With the dowels off of the toy car, glue the painted wheels onto the
dowels, but not too far on. Put the dowels with wheels in position on
the bottom assembly, and drill some holes for screws from the below
through the bottom plywood and spacers into the block (avoiding the
dowels). Put screws through the assembly and into the block. Make
sure that the wheels turn easily.
STEP 5. Attach the floor plywood centered on the block. Attach the bumpers (they will extend ½" past the ends of the bottom plywood). Attach the Back End on top of the back bumper.
STEP 6. Attach the lower sides below the floor plywood on both sides. They should be centered between the front and back wheels on the sides of the toy car.
STEP 7. Next make the trunk of the toy car. It will be like a mini toy box.
STEP 8. Then make the cab, which will also hold toys.
STEP 9. Assemble the front compartment. It is also attached solidly on the floor plywood.
To make the wooden grill, alternate 1/8"
pieces with ¼" mini-blocks.
There are 4 of each.
STEP 11. Make sure that the headlights can't possibly come off, even if a child were to throw the car down the basement steps
STEP 12. Use three hinges to put the hood, roof, and trunk lids on.
