Do you want fries with that?
I thought id title this topic do you want fries with that.. Because I'm going to share with you a way you can build your very own Mc Donald's french fry car.
First you'll need your PWD kit and maybe some extra wheels in yellow or red for this car.
And a few tools & some extra axles to first open up the axle slots:
here you'll see me using the derby worx axle guide tool a clamp and some Max V axle pilers to do this first step.
Next you'll need a sheet of paper to trace the kit block and pattern on.. or a car pattern template sheet to draw out your design:
For this i'll be using a standard wheel base template out of a pinewood derby book.
Here is my design for the car (side view)
In the next pic you'll see me using a plastic cup to make partial circles in the design.
This is to give a little detail to the fry container.
Here's the pattern and side view of the car ready to cut out.
And what it looks like after cutting out.
I'll be saving that little block as well to make the fries out of later.. because it's time for the weight pockets!
The weight pocket will look a little something like this.. however I'll be cutting it out and not routing it.
And what they look like all drawn out and hole's drilled for the scroll saw blade to pass threw to cut out.
Remember that little block of wood i'm saving .. I'll be cutting it into three pieces to make the fires out of numbering 1.2.& 3.
3 will be the bottom plate to cover the weight pockets #2 the first set of fries and #1 for making the M with .. however you could just paint this detail on.
A view of the bottom cover plate and one set of fries.
And a view of the last set of fries on top.. I used the cuts out of 2nd set middle's for them.
Here it is kids the Mc Donald's french fry car:
However still needing paint.. But I hope it gives you the Idea on how to make your very own.
How long did it take me to cut this car out?
It took me longer to post all of this then it did to cut it all out and take photos of all this in about 20 minutes.
Hope you have enjoyed it kids.
