My son loves my random orbit sander. Every time I use it my son wants to watch up close. If he sees it sitting idle in the shop, he’ll point to it and whine hoping I’ll pull it out. When I do use it, he has started bringing me disks to replace used ones.
This weekend I let him use it.
And of course once he got to play, my daughter wanted to play as well.
Good little helpers they both are.
While it might bug me a little as a perfectionist that they concentrated the sander too much in a few spots making it not perfectly flat perhaps I’ll remember the piece fondly in the future.
They both helped sand a side to the Roycroft bookshelf that I’m making. I found a great pair bookmatched pieces of quartersawn white oak. I would say unfortunately the seam joins the sapwood, but I tend to like two toned pieces of wood. It makes them a bit more unique than most pieces.
Until next time.
