She loves to help me in the shop or what ever I am working on so we thought a starter work bench would be in order.

She was working the hammer, screw driver, drill press and radial arm saw with out much trouble in the first minute.

not quite yet but I am sure she’ll be on my work bench soon.

She already want’s to wear the safety glasses when we are working so another good start there.

That’s great! I loved my Handy Andy tool kit when I was a little girl. A few nails and a pile of scrap wood scraps kept me busy for hours at a time.

umm..I’m not sure you should let her use the radial arm saw…lol. I had a plastic tool box of “tools” that I used to follow my dad around with, never too early to start.

Thanks all for your best wishes and comments.

She is good with the hammer. I held some of the nails for her and she only hit my hand once in about 20 hits on the heads. I’m impressed.

Rob, for now, I’ll let her play with the radial arm saw on the toy work bench.

Grizz …good job grandpa ouch! I guess I could be a grand parent at 45 but trust me, she is mine :-) She did get some extra tools that match the work bench from her real granny and grandpa.

Hey, look at her go; she looks like she is really having fun and I think it is great. What a nice and thoughtful gift.

Reminds me of my little girl when she was your daughter’s age. I made her a little workbench and bought her some battery powered toy tools for Xmas. She loved it and had me put it down the basement where my shop was. You’ll never regret allowing your little ones to follow in Daddy’s footsteps. My daughter eventually became a mechanical engineer. God bless you and your little girl. You’ll never have a more devoted ‘helper’ or a better relationship in life.
