Right arm, Dad!

There are lots of gal woodworkers at the local shop – most of them can put my shirt in the dirt with their talents.

Very nice & cute workbench for the “cute” only. I like this educational game play, she is trained to wear ear muffler while working with the least noisy power tool, unless she has to share the same workshop time with you. Great job on the workbench & the training.

My little girl is 1 month old today. I can see this already. Nice design on the bench by the way.

Yep it is all about getting them compfortable with the safty equipment. She knows shop saftey more than my wife does. We have all kind of toys to improve hammer skill and accuracy and safety. I learned the hard way with black and blue thumb nails. She already has better hammer skills than I did at her age. She is almost 5 now and has a flotilla of boats and a huge number of bird houses all over our property. And she has real tools like a coping saw and a 12v ryobi drill. The toy tools have been handed down to her younger sister

Awwwwww. She’s cute as a BUG!!

But she doesn’t have enough clamps ;-)

PLEASE tell me you’re new to LJ’s?

Oh, good. You are.

Wood GROWS faster than my projects get built. I had the sickening feeling that you were just banging these projects out in a couple of hours :-)

great to see . Glad little gals are getting into woodworking. In my day, it was a no-no. To learn & teach myself was a real challenge. Way to go DAD
