Hey everyone, it has been awhile since my last post so I thought I would share my latest. I have a 4 yr old young boy and he has been obsessed with airplanes lately. I made some shelving out in the garage and had some left over 3/4 inch and 1/4 inch plywood, so I decided to use the scrap and have some fun. What was not fun was the fact that my scroll saw, lathe, table saw, and power sanders are all in storage. This was done with small peices of sand paper, a skill-saw, hand saw, and a wood shaping file, and a drill. What I came up with was a Tri-wing airplane. Kind of fun, a pain to paint and sand due to the plywood! Thanks for checking it out!

Neat little plane, I’m sure your boy is loving it.

When I first saw this post, I misread it as tri-WINNING airplane and thought, who is this guy, Charlie Sheen?
