  1. Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts Make Kazoos

    I am Scout Leader with my son's Boy Scout Troop and as part of our big field day to recruit the older Cub Scouts into our Boy Scout Troop, I arrange a small woodworking project for the Cub Scouts (ages 6-11) to do. The Boy Scouts run the event, with adult supervision, and help the Cubs make the...
  2. Scout Camp Project: Catapult

    Thanks to Lockwatcher for the idea and great directions. We made this catapult in our Cub Scout Camp. I cut the pieces and predrilled so the boys could easily put them together. We had 200 boys and they all loved it. This was one of their achievements to complete the Craftsman Badge. They...
  3. 3 rd Place and Redemption

    The gold car is what my son made and raced in this year's derby and came in third. The red car is one he ran last year but did not place.
  4. Scout Crossover Bridge

    After I built the Arrow of Light I was asked by the Pack Leaders to see what I could do to make a new Crossover Bridge for the Pack. This is what I came up with. The platforms will give the boys a specific place to stand while they wait for there time to Cross. Used big box 'Birch' ply for...

    Arrow of Light Plaques for Cub Scout Pack 225, January 2014
  6. Pinewood Derby cars with son

    Tiger Cub year-Gravedigger theme Wolf Cub year-sports car theme. (I think it looks a lot like a 74 Pantera). This year he wants to be a speed winner instead of a design winner, so we'll probably be doing something more basic.
  7. Arrow of Light Shadow Box

    This is a shadow box for my son. While in WEBELOS he earned his Arrow of Light and he wanted to way to display it. To make the box I re-sawed some pallet wood, not sure what it is, to 1/4 thick. It is 36"l x 6"t x 3"d. The arrow supports are made from the same wood. The finish is 3 coats...
  8. 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...
  9. 69 inch Staff

    I was at a craft show a few weeks ago and a Scout Master asked if I could make a staff. I make walking canes, but my Craftsman lathe only handles about 36 inches, so a staff would require two pieces joined together. I wasn't crazy about the joining issue due to alignment concerns but gave it a...
  10. Knot Board

    This is a booth for the Houston Scout Fair. The main board is 4×8 ply and has 49 knots. All knots are tied with 1.4 nylon rope. Their are 7 boards that are 12×36. These boards show step by step exmples of how to tie 7 basic knots all Scouts should know. Square Knot, Overhand Knot, Bow Knot...
  11. Arrow of Light jig

    I don't have the jig any longer so I can't give precise measurements. I'm going to guess that it was about 2' square. The usual size board I put in was 11" to 13" high and 23"+ wide. Spacing boards and a couple of wedges hold the plaque in place while working. I made the jig to fit the...
  12. Cub Scout Shadowbox

    After my son crossed over to boy scouts last year, we decided to build a display to preserve his pinewood derby cars and his cub scout swag. We made this out of some oak I had laying around the garage.
  13. 2015 Switchblade Pinewood Derby Car

    2015 Pinewood Derby Switchblade Car: I cannibalized parts from a cheap knife, belt clip, BSA Pinewood Derby car wood & wheel kit, brass shimstock, assorted screws, and some brass tacks to make this year's car. I wanted something that would meet the official racing spec, look like a real knife...

    This is a custom camp box built to be used by local Cub Scout troop. The front and back panels can be removed and attached to the sides to make a table and food prep surface. It is on wheels for easy transport. The logos are wood burned and it has 3 coats of clear satin poly. The case and...
  15. Woodworking Skill Share
    I'm scheduled to run a Woodworkinmerit badge course over the Christmas holidays at a winter camp. I'm trying to come up with some simple woodworking projects that can be built with limited material and handtools and give the boys practice in simple joinery as well as the satisfaction of making...

There was a 3 second time between the two carts. the second cart had different wheels (a little spongy) next year we will have better tires. that was the good news...
