My work mates wanted to put a hot wheels track on our office wall. There was much discussion on how to mount it to the wall. I decided to take on the task and use my wood shop skills to engineer a solution. Here is a video of the result. The office races begin in about a month.. I hope my car wins :) View on YouTube

Candy, this blog’s for you!!!!!!!!!!!This is the process I use to turn a scoop from a wood blank on the lathe.I start by defining the volume needed in the the scoop. The formula is Pi x R squared x depth I planned on a 1/2 cup scoop and the volume of 4 oz is 7.218 cubic inches and I want the inside to be 2 5/8” So the formula is 3.1416 x ( 1.312) squared x depth = 7.218. The depth figures out to be 1.33” I start by drawing it out and then adding scrap wood in the area...

Again, not too flashy or exciting, but with this purchase I have all the hardware I should need to do the ten coops we need, with some left over. The only thing we may need is a latch for the top of the house part of the the coops. I’m thinking of a hinged top for easy access and cleaning. Step by step :D
Stumbled across this interesting and informative little wooden mechanical marvel today and thought it would make a nice handwork practice piece for the coming Winter. Nights are long and Winter longer here in Scandinavia. The project is sourced from https://woodgears.ca/combolock/index.html and plans are available for purchse there.
