Roller Racer - CNC Router Project - Share Your Holiday
Our local TV station presents “Share Your Holiday” during the month of December. In conjunction with the Salvation Army they accept donations (toys, non-perishable food, or monetary) to aid our neighbors who have less.
Remember the Wooden Toy Car from last year's Share Your Holiday project?

Balance the quantities of each hardware item with the number of cars you'd like to build. Some of the items are sold in multi-packs so you'll need to do a little math to figure out how many of each item to order - to make it work out for the number of cars of cars you'd like to build.
