I'm an academic and mother with two young children. I love to make things. (My husband is kind of opposite - making things besides food stresses him out). Mostly I sew and my Wordpress blog is full of sewing projects. However, a few years back I took a woodworking class and now my little daughter (5) has some little tools of her own and we are starting to build things together. I am using hand tools nearly exclusively for a few reasons: 1) safety for my kids; 2) lack of space; 3) like them better - don't like the noise of power tools.

I know I will need a lot of help and advice, and I look forward to showing what we make and hearing comments from others! I'm also looking forward to seeing how others work with their children.
