I wanted to share these photos to encourage everyone to get your children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and young friends involved in your work.
My son is 18 months old and wants so badly to imitate everything we do. I put in the smallest blade we had and I let him help me scroll saw.
My 3 1/2 year old daughter took to the scroll saw like a natural. (Must be genetics) She has spent most of her weekends in the garage with my father and I for glue ups and such and she is no stranger to a wood shop.
She was SO excited that she cut a board in HALF!
I just hope that I can install in my children the same love for woodworking that my father taught me.
