Now, you may have started to realize how cool an activity woodworking is, but you’re probably wondering where to start and how.
Well, the simple answer is probably to go to the nearest craft store. You can purchase woodworking kits there. Perhaps one of the best options is the pinewood derby car—as promoted by the Cub Scouts. Building it is surely going to be fun. Using the axles, saws, bore polisher, scales, and everything else is going to be a part of the entire experience. I can already imagine how my children’s eyes would light up at the sight of all these materials.
You may feel a bit skeptical letting your kids touch some of the tools but as long as you ensure all the safety guards are in place, then you have nothing to fear. You can help them with the difficult tasks but see to it that you will not end up doing everything in their behalf.
Apart from pinewood derby car, other simple projects you can work on are trinket boxes, picture frames, and wooden flower pots. As for me, since I kinda miss being a young scout, I’d just go for the car.
