Not heirloom pieces but fun instant gratification for the kids! They help me design it, and sketch it out on some scraps that they choose.

Thanks for looking!

Im fairly certain that your kids have the coolest toys on the block! Id be praying for a hard rain so I could float those bad boys down the side of the street.

Might Not be heirloom pieces , but time spent with the kids in the shop …

Thanks for the comments fellas!

I used the old freehand tilt on the bandsaw to rough out the hulls. Then helped them spoke shave, and sand it smooth.

Time in the shop with the boys is definitely priceless. I want to teach them to make things to sell. Hopefully plant the entrepreneurial seed in them….

Mauricio, I can only agree with:-

Anthony
Chris
and everybody else who posted comments,
Joe
George

I was going to recognise them all but when I check back later I realised I will have to clutter things up with even more names.

Good work !!
