I got the idea to make a boat when i walked through a toy shop i saw a plastick boat . After some google searching i got the idear to make it rubber powerd (picture 1 ). So it was an even better toy. i started sketching and making a plan .

Step 2: Step 2 : clean up your work shop

my entire shop workshop was a mess after my last project so i had to clean it up before i could go to work

( remember a clean shop is a safe shop)

Step 3: Step 3 glue the plan on to the wood

i used a part from a pallet for the wood .To glue the plan on to the wood i used a glue stick and painters tape this makes it really easy to peel the paper of after you are done sawing .

Step 4: Step 4 sawing the boat

i used a jigsaw to make the cuts ( i don`t have a band saw ). but before you saw anything make sure to wear the appropriate protection and that the work peace is clamped firmly (dust collection isn't a bad idea either) .

to make the peddle i used very thin peaces op scrap

Step 5: Step 5 drill a few holes
