    How I spent my weekend

    A couple more projects from the shop for grandkids.

    This one is for my grandson, I started to work on this at about 9:00 Saturday morning and finished up around 7:30 Saturday night. It is currently being painted by my daughter. Anyone familiar with "Cars" should recognize this as Luigi's tire shop.

    This one is the top half of my version of Rapunzel's tower for one of my granddaughters. This took from about 11:00AM to 8:00 PM Sunday. This will sit on a base made from wood and pvc pipe which i did manage to get a good start on last night and hope to finish up this evening.

    Looks good Roy. Well done.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.
