A Boy Scout Leader Carves A Cub Scout's Pinewood Derby Racecar

Every year the Boy Scouts of America, and their affiliate for younger kids, the Cub Scouts, hold an event called the Pinewood Derby, where kids make their own toy racecars and race them against each other. Because the Cub Scouts are fairly young in age, adults help them with the initial cutting of their car body design. This shows a scout leader at a scout camp using a band saw to cut the car body of a Cub Scouts who attended the camp.
