My son just joined Cub Scouts and took part in his first pinewood derby race last weekend. A couple days ago I had a snow day from work and started puttering around in the garage. I ended up using some scrap wood and putting together a very simple display stand for his pinewood derby car. I glued green felt on the top to keep the car from sliding off and black felt on the bottom. My wife is going to paint his name, pack number, and the date on the stand. It was a simple project, but it’s nice to make something practical from scraps.

Nice car. I have a feeling we are going to see a bunch of minecraft cars at our race. How did you guys make out? We have ours this Sat morning. My two cubscouts are very excited.

The cool cars are well displayed by those well made stands. Great idea on the felt. Well done!

Thanks. It was fun to do the car with my son. He ended up placing 3rd in his Den. Considering this was his (our) first year we’re all quite happy.

Have your say...
