I’m making some super-hero themed wooden cars for my daughter Julia and her friends. They’re styled loosely after the Mach 5 from Speed Racer and inspired by the Batmobile, but the idea wasn’t to duplicate a particular car but to make a car that a superhero wouldn’t be embarrassed to drive and that wouldn’t constrain the child’s imagination. I also wanted it to be something that Lego minifigs could drive, so I incorporated that into the design. This is the first time I’ve gone so 3D for anything I planned to make in quantity, since 2D-ish designs are much faster to carve, but the theme seemed to call out for 3D contours.(read more)
