Pinewood Derby, 2013

I teased our 2013 Pinewood Derby cars awhile back... three derbies and one fair later, here they are!  Trevor made a mouse....

I made a rabbit...

Steve made a streamlined green car.

Trevor raced his car in three different Pinewood Derbies (Pack, District, and county fair) and finished in the middle of the group all three times.  But he hadn't designed his car for speed... he'd designed it to be adorable, which it is.  The judges at the fair thought so too.  Look, Judges' Favorite!

Here's the proud woodworker!

This has nothing to do with Pinewood cars, but I had to show off another proud woodworker. This is my 12-year old nephew, Timothy.  My dad has been teaching him woodworking for years and he has made some amazing things.  This year, his USA intarsia got both Best of Show and Judges' Favorite.

We're already looking forward to Pinewood Derby 2014!
