« Part 15: Namesake Keep it fun and simple Part 16 of Grandsons in the workshop:: Continued.. series Part 17: Grandson project and What Granddad learned today »

And we picked an easy project. A picture frame. We will dowel it together. So he is 8 and has been in my Shed Shop about 4 times. He has drilled some holes. identified some tools and what they do. We tutor him in math grade 2. and measurement is a part of this. Now he is coming along on this and once a week I bring him to the shop for appilcation of math ideas and teach him some woodworking. Today he used a square to mark the lines. Measured the length. I cut the wood on the band saw. I set up the Shopsmith for doweling and he did an easy job of drilling the 1/4 holes . so we will finish the holes next time and sand and stain. the picture is 5×8 from Easter. I could not get a photo of him this time. I hope this gives readers some ideas for a project and what to do with a young child in the shop. today we got a half hour with some explain and some do.

Neat – making memories in addition to the frame!
