this is a project that me and my son did together. it was a kit we bought at lowes or home depot. he did alot of the work, i just got screws, glue and nails started and he did most of the work with a little guidance. i hope he will pick up the craft of wood or something and not be a tv and computer couch potato. we had fun doing this together. he is 4 years old sorry its not from scratch but he really wants to help so much.

Hi Joshua,
You are really a cool little woodworker.
So nice to see you and your father enjoying the time in the shop.
Best thoughts,

Great project – I built one similar with my little boy. He’s now 22 and still has his tool box. I’m sure your son will remember building this project with you. You’re building special memories too.
