Usually, the majority of presents that I receive at Christmas are woodworking related. This year, I only received one such gift, but a good one, and that is a new Leigh R9 Plus Joinery Jig.
The gift that I was most surprised and happy to receive was a Lego VW bus kit. I really really wanted a VW camper bus in the 1960s but never did get one.
To make things even better, my granddaughter Isla (almost 12) was given the same kit.
Today we started to make our busses together. Since the project is likely to take a few days, we started by building a couple of wooden trays. There are alot of parts that one has to be searching through all the time, so the trays have some sorting bins. We also utilized some of the plastic trays that came with one of my Tanos systainers.
These photos show our working environment as well as our progress after about 90 minutes:
Isla is much quicker at finding the required parts than I am, hence she is quite a bit ahead of me.Here is a photo of Isla "at work":
And here is a picture of me at work:
The trays that we made are a big help and we both highly recommend such trays for any large Lego project.
