Over the past month or so my 15 month old son has been following me into the shop to “Help” out in there. This has quickly become his favorite past time and goes running for the door every time I refill my coffee mug (an action that always leads shop time lol).
Once in there he is enamored with my workbench and all the cool wheels and pegs on it.
So the decision has been made that he shall have a bench to work on when helping in the shop with daddy.
Basically it will be a small version of my bench made out of left overs from my workbench build. I haven’t decided yet if the vices will be functional or just for looks (with spinning hand wheels… his favorite part). My concern with functional is getting little fingers pinched in a vise. Any thoughts on that?
So anyways… today we got started on things and got the top laminate pieces cut to size and ready for glue up.
Here are some pics of todays progress with my new shop helper keeping a close eye on things.
Some scraps pulled out to pick from..
So anyways… need to glue these up then start planning out the toolwell and legs. More to come!
