Made the presentation to my friend Paul today. I’m happy to say I surprised him with it.
When I first contemplated trying make and sell wooden toys and knickknacks to make a few bucks in September of 2012, my shop tools consisted of a table saw, 12” band saw and a bench top drill press. Shortly after that a fellow from our church heard what I was up to and offered to give me a 16” 2-speed Dremel Scroll Saw he wasn’t using. The rest, as they say, is history.
I’ve since given the Dremel to my son, after getting a second saw. I was looking for a way to thank my benefactor when I saw the plans for this fire truck on ToyMakingPlans.com
Paul is a Captain of a Fire Department, so I figured this would be perfect. (Though to be perfectly honest, the only parts I cut out on a scroll saw was the plaque.
It just needs to have the plaque mounted and then a final clear coat and it’ll be ready to present this weekend.
Just my way of saying Thanks.
