Been messing with these for a couple of years.  I was recycling the scraps from cutting board glue-ups in the first versions, but I have been doing a lot of Bourbon Barrelhead projects.  Rather than cut the the warped or crack pieces into Smoker Fuel, I started making these.  I have a version of Carpet Buddies I am working on as well.  I modified these so they are all about 6 inches long and I can use a 1/4 Spiral Bit on. They also use a 1" Wheel instead of 1.5" called for in the plan.  Big difference in price at my supplier and liked how these look.  

This are finished with my shopmade Cutting Board paste. A blend of Mineral oil and Local Beeswax. Adults pick these up in my booth and at least half will say something about them feeling good or feeling soft.

Kelly -

I like the packaging for these lil cars, this was the first toys I tried on the CNC.

I see a wine barrel head under them, this is somethings I have been doing on the heads.

Awesome job.

The bags are one of the details I like to focus on.  Packaging and presentation is usually what people comment on when I post my stuff on Social Media.  

I actually lasered the image onto the bags, but I doubt I will do that if I sell these in any significant quantity.  I will likely create a Stamp on the CNC and pay my kids to stamp them.  The laser is definitely a faster and cleaner option, but I don't want all that wear and tear on my cheap little laser. 

Here are the bags I purchase: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00QBKTOG4/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I use these for all kinds of things so I always have a few dozen in the house.  They are great when you are giving little trinkets (handmade or not) as gifts.
