Roller Racer - Mini Element - 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.

This year we went a little smaller (3.5" long) to make a "mini" wooden car from baltic birch plywood - and styled the body after the Honda Element. Soft rubber tires lead to all sorts of great adventures - powered by your imagination. ;-]

Here is the 2020 - Roller Racer - Mini Element.

Happy Holidays!
