Default New Toy For Grandson

Grandson was coming for a visit so I figured I'd better make him something to keep his mind occupied at least for a little while.

I had these plans for a while. They said the parts were all traceable. Riiight. They were, but the lines all crisscrossed each other on both sides of the roadmap.


So off they went to MEBCWD. He turned them into a file for my CNC machine.


Started cutting parts


Hope they all fit


Rockers were exactly the same size


It's going together with very few problems so far - Rounded the corners off with a round over bit


A couple of adjustments and it's on the rocker platform


Now we add a little paint - mixed Hunter Green and Gloss White. Added some plastic eyes and painted the mouth.



Good Nuff!!!!

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.
