« Part 6: Ninja Turtle Minions Part 7 of Kids Stuff series Part 8: Rockys workshop Pt 2 »

My eldest Son Adam and his Wife Vanessa visited post New Years Day mainly due to his son Rocky starting school this year.
We had a great time together and on the last few days I found a note from Rocky (very well written I might add) asking me to make him a workshop.
My initial comment to his Mom was did he really write the note she replied yes and she said she was not sure what he was up to.

I asked Rocky what sort of workshop he wanted, and did he have a plan, now its possibly timely to understand I do not have workshop, but would love the room to have one, any way a plan appeared next day.

Now this little guy is only four and a bit years old, so we had a pre production meeting and discussed the concept.

His idea was a two story building with a workshop on the ground floor and a ladder leading to a secret trap door under the bed to the upper level with a TV.

Sounded impressive so I set to work.

Then made the little fittings

and continued on

I used perspex for the windows and” found” a couple of twin flourescent lights

to be continued, tea time.

-- Regards Robert

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Rob, I have grandsons about that age. I love the world they live in…even if toddler logic sometimes eludes me. Nice project for the two of you. Thanks for sharing.

Your grandson seems to be well ahead for his age Rob and he also has quite a creative imagination. I think you are doing a very good job of realizing his plan. He is sure to happy with it.
