That’s really cool. I let my son help me out in the shop.. He’s 5 so his main job is pushing the broom. (Shut everything down when he’s out there just in case.) We practice driving nails all the time. He really gets into it. Great idea on the tool box. I’m thinkin we’ll build one together and see what Santa brings to put in it. :)

I love having the boys in the shop, in hopes that at least one or two of them pick up on my love for woodworking. I’m slowly but surely starting them out on power tools too. At the present time though, the only electrical tools they’ve been allowed to touch though is the vacuum cleaner and the scroll saw.

That’s great William! My daughter and I were playing in the shop this weekend with the bit brace, egg beater drill and the number 3 plane. We both had fun. She even saved the plane shavings!

Nice presents.
Indeed real life hand tools are not only better, but also cheaper than toy tools !! You may also borrow them sometime.

Good idea. I think the mixture of real and toy tools is good. They want to be able to use real tools, but there are times when I think my son just wants to play uninhibited without worrying about me telling him what he can and can not hammer on.

I just saw your other project (toy tools) and I was surprised that you didn’t stain the toolboxes to match the colors of the toy tools. Even though the toy tools were “scrapped”, since they’re already done, I’m guessing the little ones are still going to receive them this christmas, right?

Also, it might be cool to remove the varnish on the hammer’s handle and stain them (black, green, blue and red) to match the toolboxes and then put a coat of varnish on them.

Just a thought!

Cheers, Fish

Yes, they are recieving the toy tools and this for this Christmas. Actually, I was planning on finishing the toolboxes. However, before I had the chance, I noticed one of my kids drawing on a wooden block in my shop one day with a magic marker. I decided to let them each decorate their own boxes after Christmas. Then I’m going to cover each one with polycrylic to save whatever artwork they decide to put on them.
