First … thanks and tip of The Dane’s hat to SteveInMarin. The design for this little project came from his video ( http://lumberjocks.com/Stevinmarin/blog/13842 ).
My 2 grandsons (ages 8 and 10) came for a visit during their spring break, so we decided to build a little project together.
Grandpa did most of the stock prep and cutting before they arrived (time and safety concerns), but they did some of the assembly, and all of the sanding and finishing with just a little help. Their initials were routed into the seats using a MilesCraft SignCrafter. My V-Drum sander was built to sit on a tabletop, but when one of the operators is only 4 feet tall, you need to make some adjustments. After these pictures were taken, they applied an oil finish … now they’ll have something nice to sit on when they go ice fishing, to fireworks displays, etc. and they can truthfully say they made them themselves!
They are both good workers and terrific helpers around the shop … and future LumberJocks!
