Last week I worked on getting my shop put together. I was excited to get in there and MESS things up a bit since I posted pics of my new workshop and people said it was too clean. LOL! So I had to throw a little sawdust around. My daughter picked the project and helped me build it. This was the first time she’d shown any interest in woodworking. It was a lot of fun working with her and for her to share my excitement. She even came up with a creation of her own that I’ll be posting. :)
So… first project done in the new workshop and first project by me and my daughter Bre. I let her use the miter saw, the sander and the nail guns. And of course I let her help paint. This is made from an American Girl doll bed from Ana-white.com. It was simple to follow. This is going to be a present for my stepdaughter who is turning 6…. which is why it is painted and not stained. I don’t like painting things. I’d much rather stain them. But… it’s what she would want.
BTW… I even made the “mattress” for this bed. Had to use my head on this one a little.
Here are some extra pics. Sorry… shoulld have taken better pictures.
This is my girl Brianna (I call her Bre). She’s 13. I think she’s going to love woodworking. She is all about safety. When we couldn’t find my extra safety glasses she insisted on wearing at least these sun glasses… even when she wasn’t cutting or anywhere near me cutting. We bought her a pair of her own though. :)
Her hand looks a little possessed. She liked using the nail gun though.
