Everyone knows what a Happy Meal is: Burger, Fries, and Coke.
As the sole owner of Charles’s Drive-In, I’m pleased to present the classic Happy Meal to anyone who needs a meal, er, laugh:
Quarter Pound(er), Coke and French ….

If you’re interested in the design bits and pieces, scroll down AFTER you watch the vid.
Wood: Walnut and oak
The menu reads:
Flries…..$0.50 (note: the letter ‘l’ is crossed out)
The crank handle is in the shape of a knife; on the other side of the crank, there’s a handle in the shape of a fork.
The quarter ($0.25) is, of course, a Canadian coin. Go Canada Go!
The slogan under the menu is “We do it all for you!” – the one MacDonald’s used back in the 70s.
Charles’s Drive-In, based on my Google search, doesn’t exist; I have no intention of opening one any time soon.
Total project hours: Roughly 6 hours.
Credits: This automaton idea is adapted from a toy (not an-automaton) owned by Bob Phillips of M.O. which I saw at the Kansas City Woodworking Show recently.
