Not My Coffee Table Project


Recommended Posts

The little darling can't fully realize the enormity of this table. Truly a legacy! Chet, I recall in this thread that there are more grandchildren? Even if they are adults I would invite each one to do a project. I personally would enjoy meeting your other grandchildren the same way in which I met your grand daughter here. On top of everything else, your presentation could not have been better! Thank you.

I started a new project/adventure yesterday.  Of the four, my 10 year old grand daughter is the grand kid that has always shown the desire to learn woodworking, she is also the youngest.   The intelli

Okay, the last day started off by attaching the figure 8's to the base. Then center punching for the screw hole in the top.  Then drilling and pre-threading the holes in the top.

Today she started off by adding a small chamfer to the bottom edge of the table top. First some practice with a piece of scrap. Then on to the actual top. Then it was

All four have been in the shop and worked on small projects.  She is the only one that has shown interest in continuing the hobby.  They all have things they pursue and are good at as far as hobbies go.   And I am glad to say none of the hobbies include being glued to video games.

This is awesome she did a great job. I love the table design as a well as the wood selection. My favorite part is the legs. The sweep out at the bottom has a very classy look and highlights the whole piece nicely. Both you and your granddaughter are lucky to have each other.

Chet, I cannot wait until the day comes that I too can do what you've done here. I vividly remember my dad helping me build my first bench - solid plywood salvaged from nearby construction sites - when I was about the same age. One thing led to another and before you knew it I was the first and only president of the Electric Drill Club in the third grade.

Whether or not she continues it on, she'll always remember it.  What a gift you've given her!

I’m with you there Mick. I have five kids and I’m really hopeful that just one will want to learn from me in the shop. If not, I’ll just wait for grandkids like Chet did.

@Chet Caught this the other week but forgot to comment on it. Amazing work you and your granddaughter did. I hope when my daughter is 10 she wants to be in the shop as well.

Do you have any pictures of your lumber bench rests? Every time I look at the picture I notice something else. They seem incredibly useful and I'd like to make some soon.
