A buddy drives a '69 SS Camaro, so I thought I'd try to make something and weave it into a wedding gift...hence the cans behind the car [smile]

This was the first toy I've ever built, and it's not exactly to the plan...but pretty close.  It's sized at 200%, and then I just used some hot glue with string and dowels to make the cans. 

I definitely learned a lot with this project, so hopefully I'll continue improving with each new toy!

What a great wood toy Camaro! This is just the sweetest thing. I love the bonnet and spoiler mods. This is a great example of custom toy design. Very creative and perfectly done.

Thanks everyone! Appreciate it! Forgot to mention these were made w/ walnut and poplar, which seem to go together well.

My friend loved the gift! I even made the cans/string detachable from the car pretty easily, but they wanted to leave them on haha

More toys to come!
