    Possibly only one more coat of poly and it's a done deal.
    I did one of these a few years ago and gave it to Toys for Tots and started building a couple more, which sat for the last few years. Well, awhile back I got to thinking if I could get one done and raffle it off how many kids I could help out, rather than just one.
    Well stupid me, I go to the local hardware store and open my big mouth about them raffling the plane off and 100% of the money would go to Angel Tree (right in the middle of hunting season of course) and the young lady kinda running the place now gladly says that she'll run the raffle for me. My only request to her was that I wanted the money to be spent locally if possible.
    This one did end up having a couple flaws in it, but I think it turned out pretty nice.

    That’s awesome, Allan! The finished product looks great, and the fact that it’ll help a kid somewhere makes it even better.

    Thanks for all of the kind words.
    I do this or spend a little money every year to help out a kid or two, mainly because I was in that spot growing up. I actually think it bothers me more now than it did then.
    I just put the final coat of poly on and will post pics of it all finished and purdy possibly tonight. Actually, I think I'll wait until I drop it off at the hardware store where the lighting is better.
    You all have a great day.

    Here's the final project after I delivered it to the hardware store. I've already seen pictures from someone else on FB and they now have it up on a table wearing a Christmas hat and WIN ME signs on it. They made it look pretty nice.
