This lollipop tree is the prototype for a cub scout webelo woodworking project. It was built from leftover oak donated by my son’s teacher from last year, so this will be going to her after the boys get started on their trees.

It’s a simple project built from 3/4” x 3/4” stock, with the bottom branch being 10” long and each succeeding branch being 1/2” shorter.

The boys will be learning to cut to length and to drill holes on their project, I’ve already milled the stock to 3/4” x 3/4” and cut the base and star to size.

I like it. anything to inspire the kids to do a bit of woodwork is worthwhile.
