Later this week, my eldest grandchild, Maggie (8 going on 9), and I will be making her a set of “blasters” to complete her Halloween costume. The blasters (non-working models) will be made of wood, but painted in such a way that all the other kids will likely think she got them from Blasters R Us. We will see, since Maggie is in charge of the painting.
All this has me wondering what sort of Halloween contributions will be coming from your shop. There are many ideas that come to my mind … gravestones, zombie parts, maybe a working model of a guillotine.
But as fertile as my imagination is, I am certain that my fellow woodworkers are much more creative and productive. Hence, I will wait to hear from you on the matter.
