Doll Stroller

I made this stroller to donate to a charity fundraiser.  I'm very pleased with how it turned out!  I routered the edges with a small round over bit, which I think makes it a bit safer for little ones.  I attached the 1x2's of the handle 3" above the stroller bottom, which gives it a height similar to other doll strollers.  I also decide to change the way the wheels were attached.  In the picture, the wheels are attached as the plan shows.  I decided I would use (2) 3/8" metal rods as axles, washers for spacers, and an axle cap on each end.   This works really well, and the axle caps look nicer than the painted bolts.  Unfortunately, I donated the stroller without taking updated pictures!
