kids in the shop is always fun and a question to be there for them
to teach the skills and let them make projects they like to do
is possiple if you there to guide them if it´s nessery
my duaghter learned to use a knife when she was four years old
and she knows it´s only when I´m in the shop she can tuch the tools
she is ten now but we still work unplugged every time not that she
don´t know how to use sanders, drill, jigsaw, and the scrollsaw she does
but she allso have a good respect for tools and she like to work unplugged
with cheisels , planes and hammer etc.
I think it´s a matter of learn the children from start that a shop isn´t a playground
before she was helping me holding things and sand things stof like that
now she begins to punk me around so I have to be holding for her
and she is a tuff boss to work for….....LOL

My son helped me when I was making his new crib. He liked to point at different tools and say “wassat?” I’d tell him and he’d say “Ooooh!”

You know, Home Depot and Lowe’s usually have little crafts like bird houses and pinebox derby cars on Saturday mornings too.

Yup. Starting him out young!
