Well as mentioned in my latest blog I did not get a lot of time in the shop this week. My daughter however got to her woodworking class thanks to her mom and was able to finish a project and bring home the one she finished last week.

She finished the bug house last week and had to let the paint dry some before bringing it home. The ball game was given to her in 5 different pieces predrilled by the teacher and then she had to put it all togther and paint it.

She did an awesome job on both projects and I am way proud. :) I am so glad we were able to find this class and that I could make the arrangements for her to attend. It is taught at a local community center on Monday mornings at 9:30, so I kind of had to rearrange my work schedule for her to go. She loves and has just 2 classes left. Stay tuned for the final project.

Thanks for looking.

It’s great that you’re getting your daughter involved and excited about wood working at an early age. Keep up the good work and start thinking about more ways to involve her in projects in your shop.

And remember…

Be Careful!

She deserve place amongst Lumberjocks. She is better than me in use of colors.

Nice job young lady. My granddaughter Nicole wants to build a bug house too. Have you got any tips for her?
