I volunteered to build the stands for the cars at this year’s Pinewood Derby. I used an old piece of hemlock to make the stands. The stands consist of three parts: a base, a post, and a platform. The platform is at a slight angle to better display the cars. We also built a car. It has a wedge shaped body with polished and bent axles. Calvin came in 13th out of 38 cars.
