Involving My Son

A few weeks ago I was reading Kari Hultman's blog over at The Village Carpenter blog where she encouraged woodworkers to involve others in woodworking. (The idea wasn't original with her, but that's where I found it.)

I was a little late in hearing about it, but realized it was still a good idea. So this past week I had my 11 year old son in the shop. We drew some design ideas, picked out wood, cut some dovetails, selected stain color options, and worked on a project together.

I've not posted a picture of the project. The project doesn't matter. What matters was the time spent with my son. And as you can see below, it was time well spent!

I agree that the time shared is absolutely the most important thing, but it is an added thrill for a youngster to see his project posted when that is possible, and it will surely reinforce the pleasure of his time spent in the shop too.

Hi Glen. It is good when fathers share projects. I agree that the time shared is absolutely the most important thing, but it is an added thrill for a youngster to see his project posted when that is appropriate, and it will surely reinforce the pleasure of his time spent in the shop with you too.

Mike, you are exactly right. Thanks for helping me in this process, too. Our project will be on here in the next week or so, and I'll let him help me do that, too.

Thanks!

Glen, "I've not posted a picture of the project. The project doesn't matter. What matters was the time spent with my son. And as you can see below, it was time well spent."

and you both will reap the rewards for years.
