This is my 13 year old grandson Greg’s bowl. Actually it is his second bowl. The first one came out very nice also. As many of you may know there is a great deal of satisfaction in being able to impart a little of your passion for woodworking to some of your off-spring. Greg concieved the design himself and did most of the glue-up and turning (with a little help from me) himself. The table saw work is still off limits.

Greg has been coming down to the shop since he was just a little tyke and gluing or nailing scraps together but I decided about a year ago that he needed to start making useful things.

Greg’s bowl is about 8” in diameter and about 4” high. The base is Goncalo Alves and the body Canarywood and Shedua.

I’ll second that. One lucky grandson. I just wish my older ones were closer to us so I could teach them.

that’s really cool.
I have two young daughters that like to try and be involved with dad in the basement. it can be a little tough to find something they can do and also accomplish something myself.

I pray God gives me the time to pass on my knowledge I have to my grandsons, or at least get them interested in woodworking. I didn’t have the tools or time when I was young to teach my son much, but I will give him all my tools when I’m gone. Hope he uses them. Nice bowl, you’re teaching him well.
