Nice looking bench….better remind your boys to wear their shoes while in the shop….lots of nails, screws or splinters to get stuck with. It’s always nice to get your kids involved in building isn’t it

It must have been a very enjoyable project with the kids. Way to go, Dad.

Excellent work! Nice to have helpers in the shop. I have three children that always want to help and I never discourage them, so long as it’s safe as whitebeast88 points out.
