Catapults to Gumballs

20140427-170628.jpg I spent a happy few hours with my daughter building a gumball/Jelly bean dispenser. Sometimes the hardest part of woodworking with children is finding ideas that interest them. In this case my daughter found her own project on the internet leaving me with the simple task of cutting boards to length. the rest of the project which involved drilling, gluing and fastening the boards was left to her. Fun project!

Maybe I’ll get to that saw vise next month, I just doesn’t seem important right now.

    Awesome! After the mess I went through tonight my daughter told me I should give up woodworking for good.

    You are one very lucky Father and woodworker! She reminds me of my 9 yr old granddaughter.
