My son, Calvin, is almost 7 and it is time that he starts learning about the wood shop. To be clear, this video is for entertainment only. You should understand your tools, your own skill level, and the skill level of any guest you have in your wood shop before you use any power tools. For part of a week, we built a toy ferry boat out of a piece of alder. Calvin drew up a design and had a clear vision of what he wanted in his new toy boat. In the end, the boat did not stay up right very well in the water. It will be more fun as an indoor toy boat. If anything this was a great bonding experience between Calvin and I.
