Howdy,

This is my daughter’s science project. We worked on it together. It’s not a masterpiece of woodworking but it sure is fun. The entire concept is hers. I helped with a few of the triggers.

Every piece of wood was reclaimed.

Hey guys! We had a blast. The whole thing is being donated to her instructor. I’m really happy about that. Otherwise, we’d have a box of stuff we wouldn’t have the heart to part with but no place to put it.

Thanks for the kind comments. We thought you might enjoy the machine.

Well done Victoria.

A woodworking project with a purpose other than sitting around looking pretty while waiting to be dusted off occasionally.

...and Kudos for letting your Dad help, it always makes us Dads feel needed.:-)

That is pretty cool, and , of course, it wouldn’t have worked without the dog, the star of the show. Good job, Victoria.
