Pinewood Derby Days

About Pinewood Derby Days

We have completed our 2020-21 season.

Please check back in November for information about our 2021-22 season.

Michael’s Woodshop has a well-defined process for Cub Scouts to create their pinewood derby cars. The process begins with a safety briefing and is designed for Cub Scouts to be hands on throughout the process. At the end of their session, Cub Scouts will leave Michael’s Woodshop with a paint ready car.

Looking for more events? Got an idea for your own project? Michael’s Woodshop always has something new going on!

How to Participate

Open Registration Sessions

Our open registration sessions are designed to provide individual Cub Scouts or small groups with the opportunity to design and build their cars. Cub Scout age siblings are welcome to participate.

Schedule Your Own Pack or Den Session

We offer Full Day Pack Sessions (up to 8 hrs./30 Cub Scouts), Half Day Pack Sessions (up to 4 hrs./16 Cub Scouts) and Den Sessions (2-2 1/2 hrs./up to 10 Cub Scouts – weeknights only). Please see our fee schedule for pricing.

Individualized Sessions

We are happy to accommodate Cub Scouts who require more individualized assistance. Please contact us at for more information.

Important Notes for All Participants

Each participant must bring their own pinewood derby car kit AND weights to their session. (We do not stock these in the shop).

We have a special jig for re-drilling axle holes in the cars. While most Districts permit this, some DO NOT. Please check with your Pack leadership in advance to determine the rules that apply to you.

For safety reasons, please plan to arrive a few minutes before your scheduled session and please plan to depart promptly upon completion.
