Hi All
Thought you might like this picture of my daughter helping me in the workshop over the weekend. She wanted to "borrow" a knife to do some carving, so I quickly had to come up with a safer alternative. How about we cut out your name in wood and you can paint them???? She loved it, and even got to have a (supervised!!) go on the spindle sander to smooth out the wood.

Needless to say, we only made it through the first letter of her name. But hey, there's always next weekend!
Cheers
Philly :D

Philly,
nice photo., she is doing exceptionally well to keep all the paint on the object - I think I would want to cover the workshop in newspaper when my daughter has a loaded paintbrush in hand.

Okay, Philly, so what did the workshop look like by the time she'd finished? :wink: :lol: Great pic, but I'm disappointed it's not pink paint. :( :D

Cheers, Alf

You know what-I was surprised by the choice of red, too! The piece of mdf took most of the damage, which was nice. She really enjoyed herself (and I got to do some work too!)
Everyone is happy.

fear not-she can borrow my tools. Although the other kids at nursery might get a bit touchy about her Lie-Nielsen pencil sharpener! :lol:
Cheers
Philly :D

She looks like she's having a blast! Interesting that there are no smart tools in that shot :wink:

Look whats to the right, though, Tim - a quick flick of the wrist and Philly's plane storage cabinet and contents would be covered in red splatter :shock:

Cheers,
