What a great project to get him started into woodworking! I’m sure the two of you will have many years of enjoyment working together.

Nice going, dad. It looks great.

What a cool bench!
Can you ask him how long the measure is?
And even a tool tote, way too cool.
You have a lucky son.

Wonderful way for a son to start woodworking, and a wonderful way for a father to share time with a son.
I hope you have many years to share woodworking and memories.

Great gift and a great idea. My kids always want to steal my tools. If they had their own it might help me get some work done.
