Tag Archives: tools


Alex has been carting around his toy tools in various baskets and boxes, but on the weekend he found a super nice one in the new toy section at Barnes and Nobel. Daddy had come to the bookstore so I suggested making a wooden tool box as a father-son bonding session (also known as giving mama a break).
Josh and Alex spent a couple of hours in the basement sawing and sanding some thin plywood. Alex ran out of steam that day, so Alex and I got to put it together the next day. Josh had done an excellent job designing and cutting and the toolbox came together very easily with a few lines of glue. We let it dry on the kitchen table until Daddy came home and noticed that gravity works on glue and that the migrating glue had glued the toolbox to the table. Oops.
