  1. Daughter’s First Boxcar

    My daughter and I just got done making her first boxcar. She did some cutting, drawing, coloring, stickering, sanding, and finishing! I think the sanding was pretty boring for her, which means she will make a good woodworker! She is quite pleased with the results of her hard work. We have...
  2. Fire, race, school

    Another batch of little chubbies, these are from last weekend. This is some for a good friend of ours Grandchildren, who are visiting from Mexico this weekend. The race cars came out pretty cute, I think. I have had that idea bouncing around in my head for a bit now, so it's fun to see it...

  4. Derby Cars-2

    More of our Derby Car collection. The 1st one, my Dad and I put together for Cub Scouts… I was bout 10 yrs old. So…. 1969! It's a little rough looking now… Did have side pipes… Windshield, Steering Wheel etc… but after 45 years of being played with by many a little one… It's still look'n good :)
  5. One of my first woodworking projects: Pinewood Derby

    At the age of 11, this was my entry into my Cub Scout Pack's Pinewood Derby. Back in 1980, it came in 1st place in my pack, and 4th place at the council level. This year, my son joined cub scouts, and I took this off the shelf where is was collecting dust as a decoration, and entered it in the...
  6. F1 Race Car Out Of Walnut And Maple

    I love F1 racing and decided it would be fun to build my own car. Instead of spending millions of dollars on parts, I opted for building a small wooden model. I used figured Walnut and curly Maple. Took me 2 weeks of making each part individually including the 1/8" walnut dowels on the front...

  8. The Great Race

    A certain number of years ago you were a participant in the most important race of your life. In fact, it was a race FOR life…. And there were millions of other participants with the same goal as you. Not only did you have to be fast…. your timing had to be impeccable! The odds against you...
  9. Pinewood Derby Car, Going Back to the Races in 2012, a long 40 year wait, with the same results

    Well, it's been about a 40 year wait, but I finally went back to the Pinewood Derby Races. Funny how things repeat themselves. Back Down Memory Lane: In 1972 or 1973, I had the best looking car in the lineup, just not the fastest. My dad had done most of the detail work, with my approvals and...
  10. Placeholder :-)

    So… I've got a spot at the corner of my two sofas that needs a table. Trouble is that I have three or four projects lined up in advance of that table (and I haven't yet come up with a design idea I like). SO… I banged this puppy out in a few hours just to function until I do something for...

  12. Race Car Bed

    I wanted to make a bed that fit into a slightly shorter space so hand drew out a race car profile on MDF, cut it with a jigsaw, routed it smooth and then made 3 d features which really makes the bed pop out. The red racing wing and the race car flag designs were nice finishing touches...

    This is a pair of race cars beds that were completed in August 2009. I made them for display and decided to try to offer them in the red and blue with other colors being a special order. They are shown setting on the ground, but I have put them on a drawer pedestals before. The nightstand...

    Annual Fall Festival - Pinewood Derby Car Race Here is a link to my digital files on what I used to create pinewood derby cars for my son's school. I started by creating rectangles that are drawn to scale. For the parents to sketch their designs on. I would then either cut them out and trace...

    All I know is that I'm happy as heck, and can't stop smiling! I've got a "real" table saw. This Hitachi C10fl was on craigslist for $250, so I went to take a look. No rust at all. I checked for flatness, parallel miter slots, motion of raising and bevel cranks, and then vibration. All were...

    Aaaaand they're off! My son Sam, now 2 ½, is a certified car nut. He has about 200 of them, which he can identify by model and color, and those are just the Hotwheels/Matchbox sized cars. He and I spend hours on the living room rug playing with cars, driving them to various locations on the rug...
