Love it - there's a little swagger there, I'd say.
I have an 8 year-old granddaughter who now has three similar projects in her portfolio - a tool box, a bird house, and a cross. We built the toolbox from a kit, but the bird house and cross were done from scratch. The projects are sequenced to teach a new skill with each project. The tool box was for basic assembly, the bird house for sawing (using the least expensive Nobex miter saw from Lee Valley) and more assembly, and the cross for a half-lap joint, using chisels, the Nobex saw (which has depth control) and minimal assembly. The next project will be a granddaughter-sized mallet to use with the chisels. I got her some Wood River butt chisels, which seemed to be just her size, and sharpened them properly for her. Learning something with each project helps to keep the excitement and interest up. Simple projects allow her to build skills while still creating something useful, and of course she gets lots of praise from grandma, who now has a nice birdhouse in the front yard
One thing we have tried to do is to let her use good tools that are capable of doing good work. To date she has a good quality try square, the Nobex saw, and the butt chisels in her tool box. Dad and grandpa both have good tools that she can use to fill in the gaps.
