My ten year old daughter is my shadow in life, wants to be just like dad all the time, including woodworking, except she likes to dress very fashionable while doing it and she loves the shop…I have kept her from anything except painting signs, hand planing and power sanding.
Recently I taught her how to use the brad nailer different types of clamps and wood glue…
she now raids my scrap bin to make frankenstein projects…just like a good worker she’ll take up the entire workbench to make one 5 sided box lol.
It fills my soul to watch her do this stuff and realize how much she absorbs watching me everyday. for example she glued the bottom on a box while I wasn’t looking and started piling the heaviest wood on the upside down box…I asked her why? she said…weight on the box will help the glue set stronger…you do it all the time
