I don’t often get time to be in the shop on Saturdays but when I do I often take a break and make a toy for the kids if they want something. anything to spend some time with the boys!

I cranked out this DROID Fighter and X wing fighter in just a couple of hours.

The droid fighter is turned from hard maple and the centerpiece is brich plywood. the X wing fighter is pine and birch plywood.

Thanks for looking!

You should bandsaw out that boy a couple of wooden teeth Maur. Or maybe just one big one jarjar binks style. Love that starwars stuff. I need to invest in the trilogy and get my little guy on that asap.

Good stuff. Looks like more than a couple of hours worth of work. You going to let them paint them?

Thanks fellas.

Wooden teeth… LOL that would be sweet! Lol

Shane, the 7yr old likes natural wood. :-) The 5yr old has already grafiti’ed all over it with crayons and sharpies. He is more of the expressive type. He always colors his stuff.
