« Part 18: Grandson Picture frame project done Part 19 of Grandsons in the workshop:: Continued.. series no next part

Yes This is an easy one. A watch Stand. Wow is my grandson picky about sanding. I should take the credit but I did not oversell the sanding. I did ask him on this and the mothers day picture frame to touch and check were they smooth. Not all 8 years old give a 7*^% about how smooth the wood feels, he does. He had to choose stain or clear finish. He chose clear. Now the watches should lay across the top board or slip around the bar. So it took 3 15 minute sessions in my small hot shed shop and ready to wrap and sign his name on the bottom. I think his Dad will be pleased. The boy did measuring, marking with the square, clamp with the vise, and cut with the back saw with help ( first time ). And sanding with one or more sand pads I have. I hope I gave readers some ideas. Thanks. Hal

On Fathers Day his Dad was pleased with the little project and pleased also when I told him what parts in the project the boy got to do. For 8 those were appropriate tasks. measure, check and sand, describe what he wants, draw with a square, slowly with help cut the board with a backsaw , the board in a vise. he chose not to stain it I think that would be my job but I had him sign under the base and it came out nice also. Thanks
