Spring break 2014, My daugther and I decided to tackle a set of Maple Adirondac Chairs for our front porch. It was a great opportunity for her to start using some power tools. In this project she used the drill press, the cordless drill, and the sander. I did the bandsaw work and assembly. Oh I also got her in charge of the drawing, so she had to figure out what part was going where and with the size of the screw. I had to help her a bit at the start but it all came through. It was a fun week.

What a great idea. I am sure she will remember that week for a long time. Plus, the chairs look fantastic.

My wife teaches 2nd grade and she always preaches to me, “yes, it is quality time but the amount of time we spend with our kids that makes them know we care and that more is caught than taught”.

Lead on man.

How old is your daughter? I can’t tell from the picture because she is hard at it.

Hey MinnesotaMarty, It was so much fun to spend that kind of quality time with my daugther, as your kids grow I find it’s harder to be able to have those. (They want to be with their friend rather then their dad). She was 14 at that time.

Thanks for stopping by.

Great looking Adirondacks! They look very comfortable, and it must have been fun building them together!
