So instead of messing about with pedal cars, scooters and stuff for my grandkids and filling the garage with more "stuff" I didn't need I decided to go back to my younger days. I do mean my younger days, like 40 years ago, well that is when I made this toy Beetle for my little lad, I made it for his 3rd birthday and he was 43 on Wednesday. Where the hell did those years go I used to make loads of toy trucks when the kids were small and most of them were given to friends & family when my lads had finished playing with them but I kept this one. This Beetle is about 12 inches long and still rolls just like it did all those years ago and still on it's original floorpan
So when the chance of going to a mates workshop came along when he was on holiday, I thought why not.
Luckily I did keep some of my old woodworking tools so they came out of hibernation and a couple of the results will be in the next instalment
