Molly No picture No picture No picture No picture No picture

I was in the shop building a set of mirror frames when my four year old niece came to visit. She was making a terrible mess out of my scrap pile and screw bin trying to build a skeleton. So I decided that my niece being interested in building was more important than my wife’s mirrors, and cut sling for an hour or so. Khloe did most of the work with my help and absolutely loved the the drill press. She named her project Molly and insisted I hang her up. Just thought it was a cute build and figured I’d share it.

Working with a kid in the shop is the most fun you can have. While I wouldn’t say Molly is a project for the fine art galleries it may be one of the most important projects you ever make. I remember making guns, cars and other projects in my dads and granddads shop, they were awful projects but my fondest memories.

It is always good to make a little time for a kid. Nice job she did ;-)

Well when I got out of the army my wife and I moved in to my grandparents’ old house, so it was actually built on the same workbench that my brother and I learned on. In fact the rack that it is hung up on is some of my handy work from when I was about 6 years old. I built it to hang some of my RC airplanes up in the garage. You’re right, though, sawdust. That was the most fun I’ve had in the shop in a long time. Until I got to mop half a gallon of glue off the floor from molly’s glue up, anyway. Haha. O_o
