Doug, you have a job to do now:
A responsiblilty if you like.

1. You must spoil the heck out of him.
2. You must teach him to love woodworking.
For the time being , stick with #1.

Cute little man!

Great, happy looking kid. You did great. Must be the genes.

Teach him safety. and not to use your chisels to take the heads off stubborn nails.

We get him every Sunday. I’ll be all about spoiling him, as well as filling up his Language Acquisition Device (Noam Chomsky). Little guy already has his first set of bib overalls.

Actually Karson, he’s my stepson’s boy, so thankful he might avoid some of my potential genetic pre-dispositions.
I will teach him early on the difference between a cold chisel and a wood chisel. And to stay away from the big bucket of white paint. I’m still laughing about your post.

Yeah, that’s a kid!! If he hangs around Grandpa there just ain’t no tellin’ what’ll come of it. Remember, he’ll learn all the wrong words first. I remember when Lizzie was about 3, her dad was working on the car and hit his thumb. He blurted out,”Son of a…...........!!” But didn’t finish it because she was there. She looked at him and replied “B—-h?”.

I really have to watch it, since “Skip” did teach me to string together some pretty creative runs of blue language.

Nothing like a new buddy, a chum, a pal; some to be a hero to. Grandkids are the greatest thing in the world, next to a new table saw.

Hello Douglas,

That’s a fine looking little woodturner… :-) Yes, I predict he will take to turning like a duck to water. Trust me, I know these things! He may even like regular woodworking, but he’s going to love woodturning… ;-) You better start practicing your woodturning lullaby:

“The blank on the lathe goes round and round, round and round, round and round. The blank on the lathe goes round and round all day long.” Congrats and best wishes to you and yours!
