Nice looking kids Bob. I saw a kid get a big present at Christmas. It wasn't long before he and some of the other kids were playing with the box. I don't guess they cared for the present.

Don in Murfreesboro,Tn.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

I had to look up which side of the road Cypress drives on (the way it was worded I’m still not sure), I thought the boy had a navigator’s console, but I guess he’s driving?

here in Cyprus, not your Cypress (lol) we drive on the proper side (the right side, same as the UK)
Yup, he built a full drivers console, with A/C ports and speakers.
Under the hood is radiator, brake reservoir and screen wash bottle.
That boy is too technical for his own good. I especially like the opening four doors.

Ok, I admit I had to lookup where ĎCyprusí is as well! One of those places Iíve heard about, but donít know much (including spelling )

Great detail all around, Iím sure being observant will serve him well, cup holder for the girl in back too! (I do hope he opened the door for her )

There is an old saying I recall that if you take 3 monkeys and sit them down at typewriters (it's obviously an old saying) that they will eventually type out the combined works of Shakespeare. So I suppose there is a chance you could wind up with a Roentgen desk out of this Bob.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Charles,
Being English and having had to study shakespeare at school untill I was bored witless, the exact quote is "an infinite amount of monkeys using an infinite amount of typewriters producing the complete works of shakespeare"

But yes, those two boxes of offcuts have kept him busy for a month, where all his plastic toys last about 6 minutes before being thrown to one side.

The plastic toys fail to stimulate his imagination.
