Is that a carve-out of Pac-Man and a ghost on there? Either way, that is a really neat toy for a child. Good job.

@Chad. I had already forgotten about that. There is indeed a pac-man and a ghost shape. Proud to be a geek :-)

I remember having to figure out the shapes in such a way that they would only fit into their own hole.

Gerbin, is this a design from a book or did you craft it yourself? Can you share some of the build details?

@Brad. It was “designed” by yours truly.
The build is pretty much what you see.
The less obvious parts would be the hinge of the box. If you look at picture 4, you can the a small dot at the back of the chassis. This is small diameter dowel. The lid at the back, also has to small dowels sticking out at the top, into the sides. There is a small stop-block at the inside, to prevent the lid from going inward.
All the cut out shapes were created using a scroll-saw.
The wheels were created using a sanding-disk.
Finish is bees-wax, to keep it a bit more kid-friendly.
Hope this makes thinks more clear. If you have anymore question feel free to fire away.

Have your say...
