Default Gaffboat:Dino-mite project for you

A rideable dinosaur? This is a two part video of an Izzy Swan project.


@Gaffboat What do you think?

Izzy gets a little out there sometimes, but his stuff is fun to watch. He also has a lot of good woodworking knowledge, tips, and homemade jigs.

It seems I never finish what I

Actually I've had the concept of a riding dinosaur in my Idea File for a few years. This is the model I wanted to emulate. Izzy Swan's is also very creative and a lot of fun and the dinosaur looks easier to build. Maybe someday I'll end up with a hybrid of the two.

@Gaffboat Now your brain is infected with the idea, you won't be able to set it aside any longer. So you'd show it off. But what do you do with it once it's done, after all, it is going to take up a lot of storage space. Well, I suggest that you first get Bosch to give you a drill and extra batteries and then make a deal to have you bring it to their trade show booth. It will show off just how powerful their tools are and get lots of visitor action. Make a video of the build to show how amazing it is as well (get a high school video whiz to shoot and edit it). In the end, you might be able to sell it to one of those outfits that rents out rides and bounce houses for birthday parties.

I've got marketeer blood running in my veins so I can't help myself--I always see opportunity and how to realize it.

You are so right, Tom. I loved doing trade shows. Here's a booth I created about eight years ago where Lola and I could interact with show attendees and give them a souvenir photo. People kept the photos on their desks a couple of years and would comment on them when I met them again at future shows. Fortunately I'm not the only person who is easily amused.

The legs doing the pushing is quite genius imo

I was thinking something like that. Unfortunately all my grand and great grand kids live a long way away. Maybe this would tempt them back?
