My 9 year old son and I took a road trip today.
He got a visit to the Train / Hobby shop and then I got to go to Woodcraft.
We wandered around Woodcraft and he was asking questions about everything... At the back of the store was a Festool Kapex CMS hooked to a Vac. I looked it over for a while - I'd never seen one. He asked me : Why is is covered in sawdust? I had to laugh . . . Isn't that one of the major selling point of the Kapex - better dust control?
He was fascinated by the lumber display in the back. He was knocking on each piece of wood (I don't recall why - explained why at the time) and comparing prices. He wanted me to buy his sister some purpleheart and make her something - she loves purple. Does purpleheart remain purple or does it brown up over time?
$16.00 model at the Hobby shop.
$10.00 lunch at Burger King.
Spending the day with your son - priceless.
