Step 5: Drilling Axles Holes
Step 5: Drilling axles holes
8. What I did for the eyes was, I drilled a hole straight through and got 2 axles and I used wood glue and glued them where the eyes are supposed to be.
Step 6: Gluing and Painting
Step 6: Gluing and painting.
- Put wheels on axles and see if it fits then using the wood glue, glue them on, while you are putting them in with the glue give the axles a circular motion so the glue spreads all around it.
-Paint toy whatever color you like, I used a paint brush and white paint.
-You just made a wooden bunny!
