Balsa viking boat


When my mom was in highschool she dissected a frog that led her to pursue her career as a veterinarian. She kept the frog, Freddie, in a jar above her desk. She retired recently and as closure on her career, wanted to provide a wake for Freddie. I thought a viking funeral in my parents’ pond would be appropriate, and I offered to build the viking boat.


  1. Designed plans
  2. Built boat
  3. Put Freddie in the boat, set it on fire, and watched it sink
