« Part 12: Grandsons..Learn Tools are cool Part 13 of Grandsons in the workshop:: Continued.. series Part 14: Grandsons Leaving..So here's What ! »

Yipppeeee. I am so glad to say ” done” the hasp about drove me crazy. 2 broken #6 screws that come with the hasp. Lesson learned…get #8 screws they are wider and fit.. Next I did a double bevel to enhance the lid meeting the bottom…in one photo. It really brings out a connection, instead of a but joint lid to base. Now the lad is 5 and half so he did most of the measuring he could. found the center of the side. drilled a hole or two. sanded other things. learned magnets are cool. played with the 3 vises in the shop bench. I know he learned something maybe not about the box but about being in the shop and safety and drilling drywall screws into boards. I posted more about this box in my projects.
Lastly I have pictures of the other grandson box made this summer with the two tone lid.
And last fall the Bank box I made for the #2 Grandson with the secret lock…check it out in my projects.
Thanks Hal
