    These are great weekend entertainers for the kids... and i'm at that age now where ever i end up a weekend there's a bunch of em around!

    Anyways this can be a guide for how not to make one and better way to make another :D



    I spotted the first one on pinterest and pretty much just copied it for my Grandson

    but should it get wet or end up left outside in the weather for a month... well it's kinda heartbreaking :(

    So the second time around it was the nephews turn. I after a bit of think i came up with this. This time using off the shelf pvp pipe.

    Pulls apart for easy storage is weather resistant and a heck of a lot cheaper and easier to make :D

    Great work on both but the second one smashes it :thumbup:

    Maybe look to painting some of the support tubing orange also?

    awesome!

    We made something similar, but used chalkboard paint for the road so you can draw on names and etc

    Just needs the little tangs on the end so you can plug track into it and make a race course!
