(Ezra) making a wooden box

Ezra brought me a piece of plywood today with pencil marks drawn all over it.  That is where he wanted it cut.  So I ripped it on the table saw and cross cut it on the compound mitre saw…

I gave him a little help laying this out, showed him how to clamp it, and then he went to town drilling 1/16″ holes and pounding finishing nails into it.

Only 2 breaks in the drill-bit, which isn’t bad for such a small bit and a 7 year old.

It turned out nice!  We’ll put a lid and hinges on it soon.
