If you like a challenge, enjoy having an excuse to be outside and are looking for ideas for practical projects, you’ll find that building a boomerang is great fun.

Also, boomerangs are a great project to build with family members you’ve wanted to introduce to woodworking. And when you are done you get to go to the park and spend time together throwing them.

I have just one warning: Boomerangs will draw a curious crowd of onlookers.
