Paul and I have made small boats, birdhouses and he has helped with many of ‘my’ projects. I think he enjoys the working on grownup projects the most with the wooden boats a close second. Paul can saw a straight line with my pull saw, is good at planing, hammering and is getting the hang of screws (they are more boring than hammering :-). I think the biggest thing is that it is a ‘real’ project something that isn’t obviously just busy work. I like the above idea of using the Boy Scout materials. Oh ya Paul is 8 now but we’ve been working in the shop for a couple of years now.
