This is great. It’s a wonderful thing to pass down your ‘know how’ and skills to the younger generation. Congratulations.

Look at that focus during the cut! He was trained well.

love too see the master passing on his wisdom and experience creating a future master woodworker.its so sad that these skils are no longer being taught in schools,usually the only place most ever got exposed to the trades.after 25 years my son has finally gotten interested and has made a few projects.this reminds me when i was that age.

I love how he sticks he tongue out as he concentrated on his first cut.
I agree with the previous post. He really seems to enjoy his time in the shop.
