With the holidays coming up, you might be thinking about gifts you can make for your friends and family. The Fast Toy Wood Car, from the pages of MAKE Vol. 32, is the perfect gift for a kid (or kid at heart) on your list. It’s simple and fun to build. You can check it out over on Make: Projects. Author Ed Lewis says :

Lots of my friends have kids, and that means lots of birthdays. I wanted to have a custom present that’s easy to make and has lots of room to play, in terms of design.

A toy car fits perfectly. So I can build cars and make kids happy? Win-win!

Another fantastic gift? A subscription to MAKE magazine.

    As soon as I read this, I immediately went looking for the materials. It’s not cheap at all to buy rollerblade wheels, sigh. Does anyone know a cheap place to get rollerblade wheels?

    I got a pair of rollerblades for $4 at Salvation Army. So 8 wheels with the bearings for $4. not bad.
