Most important project of my life

It is important because it is the first project my six year old daughter did with me in my woodshop. It is made of 1/2 inch MDF. It is painted with sample containers of Behr Ultra latex paint. My daughter made the design and the color scheme and participated in cutting the pieces, on the scroll saw, and sanding, on the disk sander, as well as painting each piece. She is very proud of what she made for Mother’s Day!

I have posted a blog with the full story here.

Thank you all for the comments. I intend to let her read (with my help) them all herself.

Memories that last longer than the wood.
Nothing like our kids and grandkids to keep us young.

A beautiful project. That girl can cut & paint. I bet Ma was proud, and Pa can’t hardly wait for father’s day.

Now I’m all teary-eyed. I’ve got a daughter too. I’d love it if she could do something crafty with me.

Thank you all for your kind comments. Jacqueline read (with my help, she’s in kindergarten) all of the posts. She was very excited. She asked me to tell all of you “Thank you for the messages”. Thank you again.
