What is she wearing? Some kind of smock made of tyvek? I would have saved more than a few t-shirts on my build if I had something like that.
Very cool indeed.
Great reason to boast a little - the grups done good here. (Nice wood shop too)
You can be proud of her today and
in the future you will cherish the memories the time you spent with her on this project. When I think of the time I spent with my daughter on projects when she was growing up I just wish I had done more.
In addition to the joy of the time you spend together, teaching your daughter how to use tools and make things will be very valuable for her. The father of one of my daughter’s friends bought an old junker for his daughter’s first car, then they spent a year rebuilding it together into the car of her dreams. I wish I had be that wise and competent.
Yes, it is a Tyvek smock. I used to work at Clipper Canoes and the guys in the back wear them. The owner gave me a few of them and that’s what Maddie’s wearing (although they’re a bit big for her so she has to use a belt). They definitely keep the mess off of your clothes. Not sure where you can buy them – perhaps at Home Depot or some other similar type store (maybe in the painting section?).

Look out man … I was 12 when I discovered all the fun stuff you can do with fiberglass and resin. 32 years later and still messing around with it.
If she decides to go to school down here please know she has a part or full time job with us if she wants it. Welcome to stay in our Ohana house too.

My little guy ( 2.5 ) already knows to hold a rudder blade up to the light to see how it looks once it pops out of the mold. He started saying on his own one day … " WE made this. "
