I had wanted to work on shop furniture this weekend, but lack of sleep meant putting it on hold again. My 5 year old asked me from the moment she woke up to do woodworking with me today since I had mentioned making a shop cart.
On a whim, we went to the backyard to look for some twigs and tree branches that I had cut last year and asked her to make a project. She chose a toy car and cut the body with a pull saw. She also drilled the holes for the wheels with a hand drill. Since she chose to use axle pegs, I helped her to drill the car body holes on the drill press.
All and all, a fun 30 minutes with my kid (and she did most of the work)! She loved the project, drew a happy smile :), and raced it around the garage! This beats working on any shop furniture and a great way to end the long weekend.
