Hi all,

This small toy is still under construction, but my little girls are enjoying so much that I think you may also find it inspirable for building wooden toys for yours as well.

The main challenge is to design the moving parts. Finishing is very important to get smooth movements. All made of wood (brazilian ones) and some copper wire. See the complete video in the link below.

Feel free to suggest options to get the marble down.

Thank you!
GWeigert.
