My grandson came to visit for three days.
So we made a box. I milled out some nice fir into 2" strips and two pieces for top and bottom.
Matthew ( 5 will be 6 in November ) cut the 2" into pieces for the ends and sides of the box. Maybe a little help from granddad. Used my dovetail saw. Not exactly the best but he had fun. The picture cutting had to be taken after the real cuts. HE LOVED cutting wood.
He helped spread the glue and put on clamps and take them off.
We used the 6" belt sander to smooth the ends after glue up, then smooth all the box after the sides were glued. He lked watching, but did not like all of the noise.
He was so happy with his box that he got to take home.
I went down by myself and cut out the top on the router table.
I learned you really have to be careful with kids in the shop. He knows NO fear.
