pursuit of sawdust



The family workshop is beginning to get busy again, little elves making presents…

Kyle comes from several generations of carpenters and has dabbled in the workshop before, but this year he has several projects going on at once. He mostly uses the scroll saw, but this year he has tried out the sander and drill press. He has the spirit of giving and knows the appreciation of handmade gifts - both by the giver and receiver.

Can't wait to see the results of the secret project. I still love the lighthouse picture you posted before. When are you going to send it to me???

Kyle is going far in this world with his giving attitude. Can't wait to see what he is making. I hope you post a picture after Christmas.

Love that intent expression on his face as he works.

What a skilled and sweet grandson is Kyle!

Yes, please do show us something he's made (when it's not so secret any more!)
