G-Man's Pinewood Derby, Year 1 of 3

Nothing better than a dad helping his son make a pinewood derby car. I, of course, didn't want to be one of those dads. You know, the ones that make this awesome car for their sons to race.
Yeah, this isn't that car. Take a slab of pine, attempt to cut it with a variety of saws, sand it, and paint it. Now I understand why flames are so popular. I made a template out of masking tape, so that we could have a big G. The paint bled through, so it looked like it had flames on it. Good thing we went with the rocket boosters on the back.
In the end (last Saturday, that is), G-Man was third of three in the bobcats for the ward. Oh well, maybe it will get better next year. It was still fun.
