A Workmate, probably the greatest invention for a shop with limited space.

I built this two years ago for my son for Christmas. This is a fully functional miniature that I built from scratch.

It’s not a nice mini Roubo, but my son likes it.

Awesome! Keep the interest going. I’m sure he’ll absorb anything you throw at him.
