Our family comes from entire generations of "can-do" people. And I'm proud to say, that make-do, reuse/recycle gene is showing up in our "middle" son, who is just turning 11. He's proving to be quite handy himself, by creating new items by reusing old pallets and scrap wood.
Here are some examples of his handi-work:
This wonderful centerpiece box was made from scraps of tongue and groove wood from our house.
I love it!
Here he is with the workbench he made for himself.
This shelf was made from part of an old pallet.
Learning how to use the different tools will be a lifelong treasure.
He made this bed for Ammi and her puppy. They love it!
