One of most valuable instinct for humans is balance. We will boos it up with this balance wheel. This type of things make great physical activities for kid. Hardest part was to figure out proportions and size. Project costs 30 EUR and 8h of work.
Preparing all parts and checking strength with dog
Some kind of materials we made of what we have at home. This will connect steering wheel with frame
Double checking screw possitions
These should be assembled and glued
In my design I will use mix of wood and alloy parts. Take attention when choosing screws – they should be with appropriate heads to hold pressure.
This brand comes from old soviet times. I will use it in some places to get extra strength
Design of steering wheel joint
Unfortunately I can’t found the screw nut for wheels but in this case it will bi ok as it is
Quite tricky part is bench to figure out angle. Wife promised to make soft bench cover.
Seat joint from the bottom
Seat joint from the top. This is kind of trap to hold bench and allow adjust height if needed.
Simply light weight design
