William your really something!Man when you start something you go to the extreme to get it right!I had no idea what making legs intailed but your demonstration filled all the voids i had of them.Beautyful narration of your going ons there.And in detail with nothing left out.You should be the guy that explains things on paper for every item sold so people can understand what they need to know when we buy something.When you work ,buddie you work!

Wow, I am IMPRESSED. You went from zero to done in 2 days. All I have managed to do today is work on a physics project. I have played with hot wheel cars, marbles and dominoes. Rube Goldberg is killing me.
I bet you got most of that done before the yellow box paid you a visit this afternoon returning your shop helpers. Gata love em!
Great job William;)

Someone got it. I didn’t think they would.
I sort of done a double meaning there with the title on this one.
Good foundation for the cabinet and a good foundation on bulding a love for working with wood on the kids. I didn’t think anyone would actually catch on to that though.

sometimes I´m lucky enoff to understand something wish ain´t the same as remember it …LOL
I think the most importen is to learn them is using tools the correct way and not to be affraid of try
new things in the DIY sector if they catch the virus and get a bide from the woodbug
then its good but be able to more or less build their own home or at least repair most of it
and like to do it too that is what I try to do with my princess and let her think about how things
maybee shuold be made even though she has never seen it before with other words
learn her to teach her self to think sort of out of the box thinking

take care

That is looking really good and you are really progressing fast. I like the idea of telling the kids that the scraps are a puzzle to put together! :-) Sometimes they get into the good stuff, Grrrr! Be watching for more progression.

I agree with all of the above William! This is a great start to a wonderful project and also you really set a great example for your kids. Pictures are great. Narration is great too. I can’t wait to see what is next!
