Thanks for the idea, I had such a great time helping my daughter make it! The expression on her face when she gave it to her Mom (my ex) was priceless. I'm getting smarter too, after she drew out the pattern we made enough pieces for three of them. Now I'll get to see the joy repeated when she gives one to her grandmother (my Mom), and she has one in reserve. One of life's greatest moments is watching a child discover something they didn't know they were capable of.
Wow, Daniel. It was a joy to see your post and the pics of your daughter. It's just what I had hoped when I posted the project. It's funny how something as simple as drilling can be a treat for a kid. I thought it would be boring (so to speak), but I'm jaded. I had forgotten how cool it is to see the tool cutting for the first time, and how you can feel the cutting action as you pull down on the handle, etc. I'll share this with Mike (or art director), who did the plan, and has a daughter of his own, about the same age as mine and yours.
You made my day (and your wife's).
