The body is cut from a solid piece of pine with a scroll saw, not laminated. The paint is various colors of non-toxic acrylic paint. The birch hardwood wheels are finished with amber shellac.

I made these cars with holes for peg people before by drilling the hole before I painted the body. I was never satisfied with the results.  It was hard to paint and sand inside the holes, and I did not think it looked good. The curved bottom made it a challenge to drill the hole verticle. The kids didn't care.

This time I drilled the hole after the painting was done. You need to use a good quality, very sharp, forstner or brad point bit and drill slowly with a drill press to avoid chipping the paint. A bit of blue painters tape may help with this.

I drilled these with the car fully assembled. Drilling after assembly ensures that the hole is vertical and no jigs are required.
