Jackson my 3 year old grandson created, sanded, organized, glued and painted this for Grandpa. I think it is the best ”.....” I have ever seen! I have it in a prominent spot in my shop for all to see!

Hey, I built a miter-sled jig like that… but yours looks better.
Great job.

I think he must be named after the famous abstract artist Jackson Pollock!

My Dad used to let me play in the shop and make things too. He gave me a kitchen sponge, a Skil twist drill, a handful of screws, and set me up on the workmate. I always had a blast “working” with him—I still do!

you are right, that is the best ”...” that I’ve ever seen as well.
Is the piece dated for future reference?

That’s a really nice piece, but be careful Grandpa, It won’t be long before he wants some of the “good wood” My daughter has been using a hammer and nail making pictures & spelling words on scrapes and now she wants to make better looking pieces out of my “good wood”.
