Tool box build

The boys received real tools for Christmas: a hammer, slotted and Phillips screwdrivers, tape measure and gloves. Naturally, that means they need tool boxes. So this morning's project was to use scrap lumber to do just that.

Chris cut the wood and predrilled nail holes last night. The boys helped with assembly.

Using a mallet to put the handle in.

Wil hammering nails to attach one end.

Sam's turn to hammer nails.
 Sam is a little stronger, but Wil was more accurate hitting the nail and had better technique. They both needed some help finishing but did a good job and didn't hit any fingers.
Working on technique.
 And the final products:
It's heavy!

I'm strong!
When it warms up this spring, we'll pick up some paint so they can personalize their tool boxes.
