I have started taking my 3 year old grandson to woodworking with me and he absolutely loves it.

It kind of curtails any projects that I have on the go as he takes some looking after but it is so great to see him doing things with his hands. He even got to sound the horn for lunch!

Here is his first project (with some help of course)

The last pic is on the way home with pops (me) in the car from woodworking, totally tuckered out.

Good job on the project with the Grandson , Just don’t work him so hard the next time. :)
I love it when my grandkids want to help on a project (usualy a DIY of some kind at my Daughters house) but they are old enough that they don’t take quite as much looking after but I still do a lot of it.

Love that last picture, that’s a happy tired grandson after a wonderful day!
Lovely project he made, he is a real woodworker.
Lucky to have a grandfather like you.

What’s more important than enjoying your Grandson – and a fine looking Grandson he is. Enjoy yourself, Grandpa.
