Yeah, I know. It’s supposed to be “Throw Back Thursday” but today is Friday. In 1998 my son Nick helped rebuild an old park bench. Part of the process was planing down the slats to fit the ends. I snapped a picture of him operating my Grandfathers Stanley Defiance #3 (I think). Flash forward to 2021 and he’s visiting for Christmas. We’re goofing off in the shop and he comes across the old Defiance and gets it going, so I snapped a picture. Really fun to watch him come into his own in woodworking and really develop amazing talent. Go to projects and view the Wittman Desk he posted.

Gotta thank you for showing me the satisfaction one can get from building with your own hands. That’s a feeling no amount of money can buy. Really enjoy being able to bounce ideas off you and getting experienced advice, saves me on making too many mistakes. haha

Love ya Father!
