One of my Christmas gifts Answered

My step-son made this awesome puzzle for me.  He knows how much I like Instructables so this was one of the gifts he made for me.

Everyone knows that a hand-made gift is best.  And one hand-made by a loved-one even better.  But one that also includes the Instructables robot?  He gets points for paying attention to my hobbies!

Great detail. Love the wheels and the nuts and bolts on the arms. I don't know how old you step-son is, but you should let him read all the compliments on his art (or read it for him). Huge confidence boost =)

It would make a great wall picture for your study/office/workroom.
It will probably fit an existing frame (looks about A4) or you could frame it together. Another great Instructable in the making. I hope your son sees all the positive feed back.

It is that typical puzzle material. We were at a craft store that had blank puzzles that you can decorate and then disassemble.

That is cool. When are you going to sort out an account for him?

I should get him to write up this project! He has been making other things and taking pictures of the process... but he's only 11.

"They" are OK with under-age accounts if they are properly supervised.

The latest Kitefamily recruit is only 10.
