My daughter is 11 and wanted to take a crack at her first solo woodworking project; a Maple and Paddock Cutting Board. We have made things together before but this she did all of the hands on work with only verbal pointers and guidance as needed.
The Maple in this board is from our yard, her childhood home, so this will be a very special piece for her to keep and use over the years.
My hopes in sharing this is to show you that the hardest part of wood working, at any level, is having the confidence to jump in and give it a try.
