My son Trey wanted to make his girlfriend a bookstand. I told him that I would help him make it. We spent a Saturday working on it and had a great time. He found a pattern on the internet, I had some leftover oak and all the other supplies. I took several short videos with a digital camera and later decided to make a little video out of it. I wish I had used a better camera but but it turned out pretty neat. You can check him out here:
I enjoy having my family members in the shop with me and if they want something made I always insist on them helping out. Maybe when he is on his own and looking for a hobby, he will remember this.
