Hi everyone,

I like to share with you my latest woodworking project. It's a speedway for matchbox cars.


The racetrack was cut into a sheet of plywood and then glued on top of another one.

You can steer the cars using the two handles to tilt the track.


it's mounted on a camera tripod swivel head:


I made it for my little ones birthday party and it was a great success.

Hope you like it.

That is so clever and beautifully executed too.  Must have been a wonderful party for the kids.

Thank you! I had a lot of fun building it and the kids loved it. But I missed some of the party because I was so tired from crafting all night Wink

The only one who complained about it was my dad. But I think that was because the kids allways beat him.
I saw something similar a while back and didn't know how to construct the moving parts. I got the idea of using the tripod head when I was playing with my husbands tripod that while watching TV. It took some time to find a sturdy one. Most tripod heads are made for small cameras or slow movement, but this one works great so far.
