I’ve been spending a bit of time in the shop trying to make some Christmas presents. I could see my little girl was getting antsy with all this waiting for Santa. So I took a break from serious woodworking and did something quick and fun. I built her this rubber band pistol.

I started out thinking this is a great way to teach gun safety. That quickly eroded into “Stick em up Daddy!” Oh well, I know not to buy her a real gun until I teach her proper gun safety.

Very cool, but I would call that serious woodworking.

LOL, I did this also just before Thanksgiving. Although I have some experience here. When I was 13 or so I built a bunch of these and tried to sell them at our local summer fair. I did fairly well, but I had a few leftover. When I ran across them in the shop not too long ago I figured I could make them better. Still working on that part, but my daughter liked playing around with the attempts.

You could sell those on any street corner in Detroit….. That is, until the DPD shoots you for brandishing a weapon.
But seriously, nice job.

OMG, don’t let her take that to school. Big trouble these days. Even though it’s a harmless toy, people, teachers and school officials are whacko now with all the school shootings. My brother and I used to make these when we were kids, innocent enough. Those were different times. Nice toy. Just don’t let her take it to school.
