    Possible Children's Pen Turning Competition

    We have been thinking about a competition for young members of your families, thanks also to Bammer aka Brad who also suggested it and made several suggestions. If you have any young children who you think would like to enter a pen turning competition under your supervision then please let us know here what ages they are so we can see how many at what age. It would probably make sense to hold it in the school summer holidays so can you also say when the 6 week break is in your area.

    There would be certain things that you as the supervising adult will be able to do instead of the child, such as using the bandsaw, squaring the ends of the blanks and assembling the pen also using CA. If you can think of any other dangerous parts that a child should not be doing them please mention them here. You as the supervising adult will take full responsibility and we can't accept any liability whatsoever for any accidents, incidents or tears. If you don't think you can safely supervise the child, please don't do it.

    My granddaughter is 3 this month and can just about bang in a nail. I'm sure she could come up with a fancy segmented slimline
