077. Hand Wagon
This was another toy that simply could not be built with the pieces provided -- not unless one wanted to modify them.
The first problem is in the handle. There isn't a dowel short enough to secure the five-hole strips to the three-hole strips and be flush with the fiberboard collars.
Also, there isn't a dowel short enough to secure the handle to the two cubes in front of the wagon body. The dowels that hold those cubes to the body get in the way.
I could have cut dowels of the proper lengths for the build. But I didn't. The whole purpose of this project is to build the toys with the pieces that came with the set.
Below is the result, and it's a bit of cheat. I simply placed the handle between the two cubes. The only thing holding it in place is tension. Those two collars between the strips make the assembly a tight fit between the cubes.
It's fine for a photo, but it means the handle isn't really attached to anything, so you can't use it to pull the wagon.
