2011 Pinewood Derby CNC Car: The Lead Zeppelin

I have worshiped with, worked with, and played with Dan Packard for over a decade now. Last year Dan asked me for some help in the construction of his Son's Car for the Pinewood Derby. Last year we did the "Tumbler" from Batman. It was my first attempt as such a project, and while it looked really good, I think we did much better this year.

We call it "The Lead Zeppelin"

Turning Stickers into Wooden Toys

Earlier last week i was thinking about projects i need/want to do with the kids. I was also thinking about things we could do together on our Monday Night Family Home Evening. On the way home from Work, the kids were excited to show me what they had made. They were given a sheet of paper, and a pack of stickers which contained parts and accessories needed for creating your very own Sticker Monster. There were multiple body shapes, and multiple arms, legs, eyes, horns/ears. You know, Mix and match.

I decided were were going to turn these Sticker Monsters they had made into wooden toys.
