We made this before the shop was totally set up. We had one outlet, one light bulb, a small portable table saw, a 4” portable jointer and a lunch box planner. But we had a lot of fun, he made all the cuts himself and won first place. He turned the head and the nose on the lathe. He was 10 at the time.

Looks like a fun family project. It came out just great too.

you both (or should I saw all three) must be SO proud of this creation only because of the story told, the 1st place, and the time together but in the end you have one really cool Pinocchio!
