Re: Decided to build me a rack for staging our cars.

This was my fix to make sure none of my cars slipped off the rack. A few cars had the bottom of the front nose rounded up. As a result a few cars tried to slip off and had to be put on the rack backwards. The 1/4" dowel rod, sticking up 3/4" tall, should keep any cars from slipping off. We will see ...

Re: So, what does your username mean?

Perry24, what state? I live in AR and also live in perry county. Lol. I chose zebra car after the name of my first pine wood derby creation from last year. It was made from a block of African zebra wood.

When your wife is a Harry Potter nerd...

My wife asked me to build her a desk. She's a total Harry Potter nerd, so I thought I'd have some fun with it. We already had the 3D puzzle with no place to put it, so I decided to build it into her desk. The following is what I ended up with. When I'm finished, there will be glass over the shadow b...

Re: Jeep with trailer build

Nice work, whodathunkit. I actually bought material and was gonna try and make a soft top for mine. Ended up spending entirely too much time on it as it was, and decided to scrap the idea. I did cover my trailer with a peice of cardboard and paint it to look like it had a tarp over it. The trailer o...

Re: Here's the car from which I came up with my screen name.

Thanks. It was my first build. I thought I'd try and wow the boys with my finish. I used some African zebra wood on a project years ago, so I picked up a bird foot from a cabinet shop near my house. I ripped the board at a 45 degree angle to the grain, and biscuit joined two boards together for the ...

I couldn't have done it without the tools, time, and this pdf file. I did spend a lot of time on the details. It's fun o show off for the boys.

Re: Forum Registration - Location

When I registered, it asked for city and region or something of the like. I had to assume it wanted my state.

Re: Jeep with trailer build

I found a cut sheet on line. I printed it off and sized it to scale with a copy machine. Then it was just a lot of scrollsaw work and glueing peices together. I free handed the fuel can on the back bumper and I free handed the trailer just from my head. I also cut the tire off of one of my wheels an...

Here's the car from which I came up with my screen name.

This was my first attempt at an outlaw derby car. It didn't have any weight, therefore it did not race well. But she sure was a beauty. It's made from African zebra wood, hence the name...zebracar.

Better to post the photos on a site like Imgur. Then you can more easily add them to a forum post with the img tags.
Thanks gpraceman, I've got it figured out now.
