Default New Shop Helper!

It is finally Bubbas turn to help in the shop! He has been waiting patiently (not) for several years. Today was the day. I had parts for a cutting board cut out and ready to go, and he helped glue it up. He applied the glue, spread it out with the brush and helped with the clamps.

Note the first picture was taken when Blondie was doing the same thing, and he was wanting to help! We tried to duplicate the event.

Needless to say I am a very proud grand parent.

No, don't call him a helper. If he is a helper then you have to pay him wages. Instead, follow the old time way, you call him an apprentice. That way he works for free, and you only have to provide him with food, shelter, and a set of new clothes once a year.

You can learn a lot of useful things when you read about history.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

Good to have the kids in the shop. One of my grandsons has turned a couple of pens and a screwdriver.

That’s awesome Mike , keep the tradition going . Kids nowadays couldn’t do anything other than using a keyboard and a mouse . I can hardly imagine the next generation
