Customize your Pinewood Derby car with a variety of options
This project can be built as a racing Pinewood Derby car, meeting all of the official rules, or you can build it as a toy and use the wooden wheel pattern. Just like a real hot rod, you have the choice of many options, including an exposed engine, a complete interior, and a removable hardtop.
Customize your ride to take home best of show, or simplify the project and help your child or grandchild complete the car as their first scroll saw project.
For complete step-by-step assembly instructions see Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts 34 - Spring 2009.
