My oldest daughter brought her wood shop projects home from school today, she is almost as proud as I am. These are going on the walls, the shelf in her room and the joinery examples are going in the shop (her request). She has already asked me to teach her to build a bench for 4H next year…

Really nice, I guess the apple doesn’t fall to far from the tree. She should be very proud, as you are. Great project, can’t wait to see the bench you guys build.

Fantastic! Getting children involved is important, plus quality time and memories are exchanged.

Well oldest daughter, I am impressed. I was a public school teacher for 30 years. To see someone like you, do fine work like, this makes my heart glad. I can’t wait to see what you do next.

Sometimes you get lucky. Good for you and your daughter.
My daughter, not a girl anymore, prefers to cook and is an outstanding gourmet. My son prefers to work on cars. So I guess all my tools will go to an estate sale when I’m gone unless I live long enough for one of the grand kids to take an interest. LOL

what a great daughter, she will always enjoy learning to wood work, one litle clue though, on her joinery display, switch the tags on the rabbit and datto…:)...keep making projects and start to use all of the joinery and you will have loads of fun….

Very nice work! She’ll be kicking you out of your own shop pretty soon, if she hasn’t already.

I am always thrilled to see girls who like to work with wood! And Linda seems to have a knack for it. She should be proud of her work.

thanks for all the positive comments everyone. It is always great to put tools into their hands and let them work on something, and she is getting to the age where she can actually build things, so this should be fun.

Have your say...
