Follow this link to see a brief flash gallery of some of my 14 year olds work. He designed and made the pen holder you see in the picture also.

The three shown are from left to right Bocote, Unspecified burl, Apple. The apple is actually from a tree my Great Grandfather gave to my mom when I was very young. I still recall helping her plant it and now I’ve a stockpile of wood from it waiting to be turned.

It seems that your son had a woodworking gene inside of him any you helped develop it into a life long enjoyment that he will enjoy for the rest of his life. Great job Mom & Dad.

Thank You. And yes he does. He is 14 and already just seems to have a knack for it. And yes, already has the “But wait, if I use an electron microscope you can see that does not quite fit…” perspective. Must go with that gene. :-) He’s a great kid.

If you are from around the Fort Wayne area, he is doing a demo for Oak Tree Supplies in Huntertown. The demo details are not worked out yet, but it is October 3rd and 4rth.
