My daughter came to my workshop for 3 hours. She is 7 years old. The only way to be calm it was to make something. So, she didn’t make just a box but a piece of art. It’s made from pine wood (from an old pallet) and its glued not with glue but with hot silicon. (K is from kathrin….)

You’re a lucky daddy. My daughter and I made a pair of clunky slit drums together a few years back. Overall I’m happy that she learned you can make things with your hands.

Time with children is the most precious of all, & this is going to her favorite heirloom.

I love getting my kids into the shop to help. I’m glad someone else is there with me.

If I’m lucky my daughters first project will be the dishes.

That is an awesome looking box. So glad she could join you in the shop, it is great that they learn that they can make things they want or need. I love all the time my daughter spends with me in my shop. Hope yours decides to spend more time with you.
