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.

-- Thanks for all the lessons!

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.

-- Thanks for all the lessons!

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.
