hammers rubber bands sand paper paint and a bag of assorted wood shapes What do you have Race Car of the summer classes offered at the Chil drens Museum in New Braunfels Thank you PaPa This is the coolest thing Ive ever said Christopher Williams at the end of his twoday effort to produce the car Youre welcome I enjoyed hav ing you in class you did really said PaPa aka Richard Tucker retired executive woodworking hob byist grandfather and greatgrandfa ther The wooden cars were built using factorymade wheels steering wheels axles and hubcaps Tucker handcrafted the other 21 body parts for each car creating a kit for each student I originally created 16 kits and then I got a little nervous and made more for spare parts just to be sure Its a good thing because we needed a few replacements here and Tucker had taught two previous classes for CMNB and realized that the car would be the most difficult project He took on an assistant for the wife Nelle I guess I said Mrs Tucker even though he said I didnt have a choice that I had to be there to help I really didnt mind we both like working with children We think its important for them to be suc cessful and proud of themselves Richard did a lot of work to make the kits Also we like to be active and involved and this is an opportunity to visit our daughter Museum Director Susan Williams and keep up with what is going on at the Childrens The kids all did noted PaPa Its so interesting to see the differ ences in how they work Some of them look at the model and just sometimes too others want to have every little step checked and rechecked I was surprised to have girls in the class I dont know my own daughters always like build ing Iguess I just thought a car class would appeal more to One girl Melanie McDermott thought along the same lines as PaPa about the class being for boys and did not sign up when her brother Dustin registered for the class But then I saw his car and I watched and I knew 1 could make one and I wanted to do it because it looked like fun and it was a real nice car Although the next class was filled Proud new car owners from race car carpenters class at CMNB back row I to
