For years, I had hoped to teach some of my off spring just something I had learned from watching videos, YouTubes, reading books and forums and it seemed hopeless until today. Yes, he is only 12 and I allowed him to use the skew chisel to put a couple lines around the handle. Here he is sanding. I am so sorry that I did not get a picture of him with the skew in his hand. First picture he is sanding on top of the handle, second is under the handle. Now, he is anxious to turn. I have some stuff for him to do but it will have to be dry and warm again. Steve
In a period 22-33 years ago, my three daughters were in 4-H woodworking. Yesterday, I ran in to the retired 4-H agent. He remembered me and remarked that the county judge was always in awe that my girls could explain what they had done and how they did it. They even corrected him a few times when he called a particular joint by the wrong name. We went to the state fair 12 consecutive years and the only year they didn't get a top 20% award was the year my 11 year old made something he thought was too complicated for the class she was in (jewelry box with mirror inside.) None of them do woodworking now but we had a good time with each other in the shop and I'm sure built their self-confidence up. They all still have all the things they made back then -- boxes, shelves, bookcases and a cherry blanket chest.
Got these done a couple of weeks ago. The seats and footrests are adjustable up and and front-to-back as the kids grow. There were some points in the routing where I wished I had a CNC. Bent lamination on the back slats were a challenge, too. But I enjoy the challenge.
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
