He certainly has a lot of ‘try’! Not sure if he’s ambidextrous though.

Definitely persistent! ;-) Off to a great start just like Davy Crockett, but Davy killed his first bear when he was three.

That’s awesome. Some people would watch this and be all up in arms saying things like “I can’t believe that someone would let their three old son do something so dangerous”. Not me, I think it’s great. Besides, how do we learn if not given the opportunity.

I think it’s great and hate how kids are babied currently. I had my own basic tool set at 4 (saw, claw hammer, screw drivers and some scrap wood and nails), and my dad was letting me use the band saw, drill press and a few other tools by 6, and I also had my own work bench and millers falls carving chisels (28 years later and I still have and use those chisels). However some things, no matter how many times I asked, were off limits. I am 34 years old now and to this day I have never sent a board across my dads jointer or never even turned on his table saw.
