Honor those who served and died while protecting our country. Remember Memorial Day. The pattern today is a toy race car.

I want to wish everyone in the US a safe and pleasant Memorial Day. This day is set aside to remember all the men and women who have died serving our country while in the military. This month alone we have lost twenty brave servicemen. My prayers go out to the families of these men and all the men and women who have died in the line of duty. There is no greater honor than serving your country. Please remember to pay your respect in whatever way you choose.

This race car is built from 4 pieces. The pattern has complete assembly instructions. The pieces are cut from 1/2" thick stock. You can cut your own wheels but I recommend and purchased 1 1/4" diameter wheels and axle pegs.

I get questions about printing my patterns occasionally. Usually the question is how to print the pattern without the cover page and pictures. When you select print from the drop down menu the print dialog will open. From the print dialog you can select to print the current displayed page or print a selection of pages. Use these features to print only the pages required.
