Nice table. That jigsaw looks huge in your son’s hands! Good work getting him interested in the shop.

Man that would look good in my house. I’ve got to find me some of these natural slabs some of you guys are using.

The table is gorgeous but the helper is FABULOUS! You must be one proud Dad!

Nice table, but the picture of your son working on it is better. Good job, DAD

Great looking slab of cedar, but as with the above, I think the picture of your son helping you is the best part
of the project. I have many fond memories of “helping” my father, and eventually, I did become more of a
help than a hindrance. Thank you for sharing.

Amazing table. I have 3 young sons that I hope become interested in woodworking with me someday also. Glad you got a helper.
