Wordless Wednesday

My son, working on his first big project (he just turned 10) & learning how to use several different tools (yes his mother is teaching him these basic skills).  The bench is the "Aldo Leopold" design (Aldo Leopold - brought about the thinking behind wildlife conservation).

The bench is finished except for painting - we'll tackle that next week.  Since he was learning, we were extra careful about which pieces he was keeping for the project and which pieces were scrap or kept for another project.

I love the way this bench turned out - I may make one for myself.  I'll post a picture of the finished painted project(s) later - with links to (free) plans & a little about Aldo Leopold - give everyone a little history lesson.

Linking up with Wordless Wednesday.  Click here to see other "wordless" images.


  1. Excellent! My boys can't wait to use the power tools. :)

    1. He liked the drill more than the chop saw, but did enjoy using them all.
      Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Can I just say that I adore Aldo Leopold...?! :) and power tools...what is not to love about them?

    1. Yeah!! Someone who knows about Aldo Leopold!!
      He was excited to learn about the person behind the bench (& his story) - and of course to be able to use power tools - bonus!!
