I’m lucky enough to have a daughter of the same age who also loves to hang around the shop when I’m working. She likes to play with the small scraps of wood as building blocks and “bams dem” with my small plane hammer. This is a lovely idea and I can’t wait to make one of these for her.
David, thanks. I used these two gems here. The rasp has no name on it. I made the handle for it. The round over file has the name Black Diamond then a name of Magicut. I got both of them for different antique stores around central Florida. I paid $3.00 for the file and $1 for the rasp.
I followed these with card scraper and 220 sandpaper. Over all pretty easy.
I don’t have any children and it’s unlikely I will have any. I can only imagin how rewarding that can be when your little ones appreciate what you have made for them.
Well done John good bit of improvisation with it just being a stick and the pink sash. 😉
