I walked in the room and found our 2 year old son pretending to rip some boards on his “table saw”. I became particularly proud when I noticed he made sure to use a push stick.

He had no instruction from my wife or I.

Now that is cute!

Makes you stop and think about your shop safety practices doesn’t it?

Dada would have to spend time in the shop for the boy to spend time with him…. slacker. At least he has a workbench in there already so I guess it’s more his shop right now than yours eh?

...far and beyond learning the safety of using a push stick. :-)

It is evident that he doesn’t miss much that is going on around him.
Good on you as parents.
