Me and my boys(8 and 5) had some fun with this. Was able to use some tips from Steve's jointing with a table saw vid. My boys got some experience using some speed squares I bought them (soon to be replaced with combination squares). They learned all the names to the squares and clamps that I own, as well as how to use a pin nailer. Naturally, we all had our own safety glasses at all times. The spar urethane was a little messier than I wanted them to deal with so that was all me.
