My four-year-old boy painted tiles with pictures of his mother and I for mothers’ and fathers’ days. For my wife’s birthday, I made a couple of simple frames to hold the tiles so they could be used as coasters. One is poplar, the other pine. My little boy painted the blue one (he’s a whiz with a can of Krylon), and I finished the other with General Finishes shaker maple stain and amber shellac. Small project, but significant—my first attempt at mitered corners, and not the huge failure I thought it would be.

By the way . . . the picture on the tile is me. My little boy was generous with the hair.

Thanks, Jeff! My son has so much fun making things for us—we’ve got great times ahead of us in the workshop in the years to come.
