Did a rough sketch of what I wanted exactly. then took it to the band saw.
Then drilled the thumbhole and started sanding.... and sanding... and, well you get the picture.
I wanted to use his nice drill bits for the tigger mech hole thingie so I did that too.
Here's where I'm at so far...
I've got a ways to go, but I'd thaught I'd share my progress on this one. I think I know someone who'll enjoy watching this guy get built.
Side note: Why does the insert button exist? does anyone ever use it enough to a point where they say "hey, thank god this button is so close to the backspace button I use almost every two keystrokes. It makes it so convienient."
