This is how my 4-year-old and I get things done.

Please excuse Dad’s goofy look and hair!

Good idea! I’ve been trying to find an easier way to do sanding for many years. LOL. Keep up the good work dad.

Way to spend time with the son. My 4 year old just turned 13 last month…...he’s starting to be more interested in woodworking now that he is allowed to do more.
Hey, what’s with the goofy look and hair?

There is no greater feeling than sharing one’s knowledge with the little one’s. My 4 year old granddaughter inspires me everytime she comes to visit, because she wants to help:) Great picture.

always great to have help in the shop
and your dad is excused you most
push him too hard I think he needs
some relaxing times so you can work
with the secret things you realy want
to do

The goofy hair is a probably due to the fact that you have to do the woodworking with the little ones before 7 am hehe
