Making a wooden hand plane with my niece Reese. This summer she became fascinated with my hand planes. So we decided to make on together. We happily named it The Reese Plane! Part 1.

Looks like scenes from my shop! My 2 kids are always out there with me and it’s a blast. If you have a scroll saw or can get your hands on one she will probably love it, i know my kids do. Keep up the teaching as they are the future of the craft.

Thanks for all the nice words, especially for Reese. We are no longer babysitting her like we were in the summer. I do miss having her out in the shop, all the time. Every time she comes over she is right back out in the shop.
