    Really a great idea I will keep it in mind for some younger kids. I have done a project at the last two summer camps we have had at work and the kids are always very happy at the end of it to see what they have accomplished. A great one for young kids is a basic string art, they love just banging the nails into the board.

    Thanks for the great videos as always, and real happy with the new ones midweek.

      Great Idea, as soon as my Grandson is not grounded for what he did today, he can build one. That will be in the year 2064. I was cutting some pieces for a cutting board. When I laid them out I noticed a gap between each piece. After I saw what happened I asked him if he had touched any of my tools. “But Grandpa, I just wanted to see what that wheel on the side of your table saw did. I put it back the way it was.” 😉

    Great video. I have been thinking about working with the boy scouts on getting their woodworking badgees this will be a good project for them.

    Thanks Steve

    It’s funny what interests some kids. A couple of years ago I gave a shop tour, with emphasis on my CNC, to a couple of friends of my son in their early teens (they’re all homeschooled). After running the CNC and cutting a few parts and showing them the rest of the tools they asked what the big stack of cardboard was for. I told them I ship nearly everything I make and I use the cardboard to make boxes to the size of the products and showed them how I cut and folded it to size. Later their mom told me the thing they talked about the most on the way home was how neat it was that I made my own boxes. Computer driven router, meh, folding cardboard, fascinating!
