What do you do with all the left over scrap wood from projects, and you have a 5 year old son who is addicted to trains? You make a wooden train! This was some fun Dad and Son time. I had bought the wheels a while ago at a local crafts store wanting to make something for him. Last night I brought him down to the shop and we dug through the scrap pile, I said “I’m sure we can make something out of all these pieces” and he said “I know lets make a train”. So we had fun picking and designing, and ended up creating this. It only took an hour to make the longest part being the stack which we shaped on the belt sander. He loves it, and I wouldn’t trade that time for anything. I’m going to make sure we do this more often!
