Me and my 12 yr old son are involved in Boy Scouts with me being a Woodworking merit badge counselor, so my son has to be the first 1 in the troop to earn this badge.
There are 2 different projects required, and since we are going to a district campout this weekend where there will be awards for the campsite with the most gadgets we decided to make some “address signs” for some of the tents.
He made some templates to rout in the Troop and number. then a template for the position that person held
I must say after the initiall un-easy feeling of messing up, he loved using the router.
One of the requirement requires the use of a plane, so I had him use a block plane to knock off the corners
He liked it so much he wanted to practice on scrap wood, and when it came to sanding he jumped right in.
Here is a pic of the completerd project
I can see the “wheels a turning” on what he wants to build next.
I might never get any shop time for myself
