Man I’m proud of that little girl The staff in the kids workshop did an outstanding job with all the little ones. I saw all kinds of smiling faces with two little hands full of bookends walk by my area on the way out….they really made these kids’ day. outstanding

For anyone who is wondering exactly what I’m talking about…the staff at the CHW show put together a workshop for kids to come and try their hand at wood working under close supervision. The tools (Thanks to Delta and DeWalt) are provided, as wll as the lumber…and the kids have a RIOT! I was right in front of the main entrance/exit doors, and I saw many happy little faces leaving with their new masterpieces. Really a nice touch to the show :)

LOL…so what you are saying is that she really looks nothing like me, right?

Thanks Gary, I happen to agree (although I AM slightly biased :) )

how wonderful!
Great project as well.

You were indeed in the best spot. You got to see everything!
Now is she smiling so big in the last picture because of the fun she had or because she’s sitting on her daddy’s knee?? :)

Ryan,

This was a wonderful opportunity to do both what you love and involve your daughter as well. Getting involved with our children’s activities creates strong bonds that stretch into adulthood. She appears to be a wonderfully happy young lady and I can understand why you are so proud of her (yes you have every right to be biased).

You need several of those “projects”. If we’d known how much fun grand kids were, we’d of had them first. That is a great program that the show put on.

thats so cool. its always good to see younger kids getting into woodworking. where i live there are no shop classes in schools. very little woodworkers. and the only good woodworking class is more of a master class that costs about 700 dollars for too weeks (expensive). i think its good that there are these things so younger kids can get into this great craft before they get absorbed in video games. great post.

Good one Ryan! It’s always a blast getting the kids involved in woodworking. As a matter of fact, maybe I’ll use the bookend idea on my grandson next time!

-- Bob Vila would be so proud of you!
