do you wish you had better tools… use your lack of tools as an excuse for not completing projects???

Check out this video!! Limited tools, great project and at just 10 years of age.

Now that’s pretty cool. I admire that kid’s stick-to-it-ness. I remember the days of the coping saw. And I NEVER want to go back there. :)

We need to see more kids involved in these things…..hooray for him and his dad

Pretty cool. The occasional hand of the camera man was just right. I was never any good at letting the kid screw up too much himself.

Say, was that chunk out of the table edge there at the start of the video?

Great video. This kid looks like he is going to give Tommy McDonald some competition in a few years. ;-)

I wish my 36 year old son could do as well. He just goes ahead blindly and won’t listen to the old man.

Yes Debbie, he did a wonderful job on the horse and also narrating the video as he worked. He has a great future ahead of him as a woodworker and as a person too. No doubt in my mind about that.

Yep, if there’s a will, there’s a way!

Matt sure proved that!

... and he didn’t even nick the Kitchen Table!
(I don’t think I would attempt that on a kitchen table the way he did!) LOL

Great job, Matt!

Keep up the good work!
