Have been working hard on the Work Shop. Everyday, my youngest comes in and begs to be able to help. Finally, she was able to DO something.

Very cute, but I find the lack of safety glasses disturbing :P

The video was taken on the iphone 4. I was holding / recording with the left and pressing the end of the drill (out of camera view) with the right hand. That’s why you can’t see her at first. It was a bit of a “stretch” doing both.

xwingace. You made a very good point. She has been coming in and begging so often that when there was something for her to do, I didn’t think twice.

Mentioned it to the wife and we will be getting her a pair.

Thats great , even without the safety gear at first she will remember whatever piece you just made forever and that is a priceless memory for both of you. Keep her coming back into the shop and having fun for both of you. I just wish mine were close enough to do this with.
