They learn to wrap us around their little fingers at an early age, don't they?

Re: Daughter Knows How To Get Dads Attention

my knees and back hurt just looking at that pic. You need a stand for the saw.

Re: Daughter Knows How To Get Dads Attention

Thats cute. I know who the boss is. Keep her young as long as you can.

Good looking box. She will cherish it for a long time.

Not to hi jack the thread, dad built my youngest sister one back in the early 1970's and it's still used for the great grand babies.

Thank you, not bad for using a construction worker chop saw with a blade designed to cut 4x4 redwood posts, LOL - precision definitely was not the name of the game, but we did our best, to quote my daughter "Daddy can I go inside the house when you are going to do the cutting!" my kid knows me too well, ha ha

Re: Daughter Knows How To Get Dads Attention

Great job. She'll be telling her great grandkids about how her Dad buillt that for her, how old she was, how you let her put all the cool stickers she wanted on it aall by herself. A date needs to be on it somewhere out of sight to be seen a hundred years from now.

I've enjoyed your project. Gave this ol' Geezer a flashback to when our, now late 40s, daughters were that age.
I still have the '70 Chev Impala which was new when they were little. When I open the door, I think of looking back over the seat at those two little cotton-tops sleeping in the back seat while Moma and I were driving all night to Grandma's house.

Thanks for bringing the old memories back to my house, and new ones being made at yours.

Thanks again

Wait until you get the notes: "Make Maggies Hope Chest..."
Enjoy them while they still play with toys, they grow up real quick!

Re: Daughter Knows How To Get Dads Attention

How do you get so low to the ground that you can use that saw?
I haven't been on the floor since they cracked my chest open a month and a half ago. Looks pretty far down to me. I could lay there and flop around I guess.
