Had two of my Grandsons staying with us and we had some fun in the shop .
I let them decide what to make and the tools that we needed had to be made .
First a carving knife made from a walnut scrap and a utility knife blade and it works great and second a carving chisel with turned handle and a air chisel that is reground .
The wooden knife with leather grip was done by the younger and I was surprised by his patience and a fine project he did with a lot of fun in between as you can see.
The older is still working on his secret carving which took two attempts and some help with the band saw and he will send a picture when done but I am confident it will be interesting judging by works he did in school .
Anyway we had some good time in the shop and I keep saying let them decide what to make that will keep them coming back .

Kiefer,
You are a true inspiration to young and old alike! Nothing beats having Grand-kids that love learning from their Grandpa! I can’t wait to see the “older’s” work when his finished! Nice work kids!

Thanks Tony
Giving the kids something besides staring at their laptops and playing games is great pleasure for me and fun for us all .
I hope woodworking sticks with them as they grow older just like I did and I am still thinking back of the days in my Uncles shop learning to duck whatever he winged across the shop when I screwed up .
Good times .

You got it down Klaus.

There is a lot going on for young people in “Making Things”. Makers are pretty popular on YouTube. Maybe a motor and a controller in a toy wooden car, or making a desk to put the laptop or pad on. You’ll have em coming back for more.

A wooden airplane?

Looks like you had a wonderful time.

Looks as if you enjoyed your holiday Klaus. Good to see you teaching the new generation some woodworking. Their work will reflect on what you pass on to them. I just wish my grandson was older so I could spend some time in the shop with him before I start to forget what I know.

You are one good grandpa Klaus. I treasure the time I spent with mine when I was that age just as I am sure that they will always treasure this time we’ll spent with theirs.
