So I started a collection for my son when he was born a little over two years ago. When I would see a hotwheels bin I would add a few that I found cool to the shopping cart.

This weekend I decided it was time to do something with those HotWheels for him. I took a plank of 1 x 4 and passed it on my table saw. I passed all the leftover PVC fauxwood blinds from 2 sets of blinds to the same width. Notched the pieces of wood with the table saw and the blade’s thickness was just right for the blinds. Glued and nailed then shot it with satin black spray paint.


Now, I have to dive in the hotwheels bins when I see them to fill it up. Still can’t find any porsches in those bins.

I felt like a kid again opening all those packages tonight. My son chose the yellow 72 ranchero to sleep with in his, yes his car bed.
