1

Cut out the parts

60 minutes

Using the downloaded Easel Files for this project, cut out all the parts. Pay attention to material thickness for each part.

2

Sand all of the parts

40 minutes

Sand the edges of all the parts, and check to make sure the holes for the bolts/axles are large enough for the fasteners – adjust as necessary.

3

Begin assembly

60 minutes

Watching the YouTube video I posted will show you how I assembled the balance bike. Simply follow the same procedure. In many of the assembly steps, I used glue and brad nails to hold the arts together as the glue dried, followed by drilling/countersinking holes and adding screws.

The wheels I used are from Harbor Freight (10" solid wheels).

Graphics

30 minutes

You can any paint or graphics now or earlier in the assembly process.

5

Wheels

When adding the 10" Harbor Freight solid wheels I used washers between the main frame/forks, and wheels in addition to the outside of these components. Be careful not to overtighten.

I used “Nylock” nuts to prevent the nuts loosening and falling off.

6

Adjust the seat height

Adjust the seat height for your little “crumb snatcher” or for the toddler you’re planning to gift this bike to. You also may consider applying a sealing coat or two of water-based, clear polyurethane to all the components.

Finish

Wrap it up and add a bow! I’d love to see your version of this project when it’s finished. Please consider sending me a picture or two – thanks!
