Great job for anyone, let alone a 12 year old future craftsman.
Bless you both.

Nice job. Did he put on the CA finish too? It would be great to have a son that enjoyed woodworking that was close enough to work in the shop with me. The son that likes woodworking is over 2000 miles away. Enjoy this time Bruce its a blessing.
