Thought I would post a couple of projects the kids did in the shop with me today. There is nothing more fun than watching your kids get creative and have fun with their dad. These were a few ideas they drummed up using some scraps lying around the shop. My son thought it would be cool to be “organized” at school. It was really neat watching him carefully use the bandsaw to rough cut and the drill press to shape (sanding drum) and cut the pencil holes.
On the other hand, my daughter has always loved the peg game from Cracker Barrel. So she figured a way to build her own. Simple and crude but a challenge for a 9 year old none the less. She used the bandsaw cut the triangle and the drill press to cut the holes.
Professional paint jobs by both. :) I am really proud of their creativity and their love to get in the shop with me. Woodworking is not always about the self gratification or the desire to see a customer smile. It might be as simple as making a memory that will last forever for my children.
