Newest CNCer

I had my oldest grandson, 8, came over for a couple of days before school started. He's been interested in my CNC because it's like robotics and has a LASER!! I showed him how Aspire worked, and how we could modify a Paradise Box. He picked out the fonts and pictures and we carved a plain Paradise Box. Then we lasered in all of his graphics. He had a great time. It was nice having an extra set of hands for the glue up. He had to sand all of the pieces and make sure they fit. A fine time was had by all. :D

Great job!!! And a nice project for Grandpa and Grandson.

From the smile on his face, I think he's hooked.

Awesome. I love having my grandkids involved in projects like that. We're getting ready to make some display case items featuring Fall (corn, maybe a scarecrow, wheelbarrow, etc.) for my teacher daughter. The grands help me design, cut, sand, assemble and paint the items. I have to admit that not only are they better musicians, but better artists than me. Thank you for sharing gkas!
