Well Week 3 did not go entirely as planned. My daughter and I only got one of the 6 trucks completely finished. We did glue up the basics to all six and also got almost done with a moving van which will be going to someone hopefully get it finished this week as next week is a majorly hectic.
As you can see from the pics we got the firetruck completely finished, this was a request from my nephew so he will be getting it for his birthday in a few weeks.
Sophia helped with just about every step. She did a lot of the painting as well. I have used poster paints on most of these because of the safety of them and her painting them though I am sersiouly thinking of switching to Folk Arts paints for a better looking finish. In the middle pic is a picture of the logos we put on the bottom. I have used, my logo since highschool when I had to design it for shop class, oddly when I met my wife Ifound out she had been doing pottery since college and had made a very similiar type of logo in order to sign her pottery. The “S” logo is one we have come up with for Sophia, hopefully she will be able to draw it herself with a little bit of practice. The cool thing about each of our logos is they incorporate all three of our intials.
I did actually get one other thing put together, this is just a small car that my daughter asked for. I cut 3 of the and got this one put together as a gift to be sent out. we’ll put my daughters together later this week, she did apply some paint to hers and I am not really sure where it went after that ??
Sophia also got a chance to practice some hammering this week since her woodworking class was not meeting due to the holiday. She is doing well just needs to work on hitting the nail hard enough to actually get it into the wood.
Well, since we had some major issues at work today I am not sure how much time I am going to get to take off as planned this week. I will have more to post next week though, just not sure how much more.
As always thanks for looking.
