This is a pine 1×4 toy I made for my boy. I used some old pine construction lumber I had laying around. Final size is 3 1/2 wide 3 tall and 11 1/2 long

What more can I say. The smile in the picture says enough about the level of satisfaction that this toy brings.

Well done.

What a neat project. My favorite part is the big smile it put on the boy’s face! Gotta luv it!

Good thing it’s not white oak. It’d have to be a scramjet. (Go look at pashley’s post)

Kids love these things almost as much as we love making them.

He looks like a happy fellow. He is a lucky one to get such a gift. Good job on the toy, I’m sure you had a good time making it.
