Surely I’m not the only uncle-who-went-a-little-too-far…

I made this when I was asked to “help” my nephew, Logan, make a car for his pinewood derby with Boy Scouts.

Needless to say, I went a little overboard… but he did say he wanted a shark!

I made one very similar for my son last February. It was even the same color. However, your car is much nicer. I know your nephew loved it.

You are a wood worker of my own heart. I tend to get cared away sometimes too. Great work!

Very nice. I once made a car for one of my sons that looked like an aircraft carrier, complete with planes. It was slow, but he won best design.
