My niece is out visiting for the summer. The other day she was was hanging out in the garage with me very interested in what I was doing. I asked her if she would like it if I helped her to make a box for her. She said she would love too. I was thinking that she would like a little trinket box or maybe a small jewelery box. When we sat drawing and planning the project she only had one idea. A box for her dad (my brother) that he could put on his desk to help him keep it neat. We designed a simple, functional box.
Taking a leftover cedar fence board left over from a recent re-fencing project we got started. She helped measure, used the table saw and even the router. All under a very carefull eye of course. I learned that nine year old girls are harsh critics and that they dont like sanding very much. Wiping on Danish Oil though is apparantly ‘cool’.
Had so much fun. Happy fathers day Brother.
