Does anyone have workshop procedures that they would like to share. I would like to breakdown the process by workstation if possible so that each workstation would have an instruction associated with it. Specifically, I would like to break the stations into the following:
2) Body preparation
a) Axle drilling
b) Rough cut car shape
c) Weight holes/channels, etc. preparation
3) Axle preparation
4) Wheel preparation
6) Body Finishing
Testing and modification
Maybe someone has additional ideas on breakdown and organization. I would love to hear what others have found successful.

At our most recent workshop, I broke things up into three basic stations. Design, which included stencil work and pattern tracing; woodshop, basic cutting, shaping and sandig; and wheels and axle prep. We (I) had a band saw, drill press, table saw and several hand tools (needle files ect.) cordless drills, and belt/palm sanders on hand.
The workshop was preceeded by a pack level intro to design, physics of pinewood and the basics of car building. The hands-on workshops were small groups organized by den. Much more time was spent with the younger cubs and first timers.
