I've been trying to teach my 10 year old son about the family trade (woodworking) over the last few months. A couple of days ago he came to me and asked if I could help him make something to put his soda bottle collection in. The next day we went out to my shop and we drew up some plans. Then we built it. The most I did was help him with the dados and do the router work around the edges. Then I just showed him how to use the and saw and the drill press and he did the rest. He didn't even need my help assembling it.
