A series of interesting and entertaining projects that kids as young as 7 can make all by themselves (mostly)

Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for By Doug Stowe #197–Mar/April 2008 Issue

When my daughter Lucy was a student at Clear Spring School, a small independent school in Northwest Arkansas, I developed a woodworking program called Wisdom of the Hands. It recognizes the importance of integrating the head and hands in the development of intelligence for all students. My daughter is now in college, but woodworking remains a favorite activity throughout the school. The direct, hands-on problem-solving that goes on in the woodshop helps the kids in all their other classes.

Below are a few of the activities we use in the Wisdom of the Hands program. These activities are fun, simple, and of course, very kid-friendly.

A Small Bench
Originally designed as a seat for preschoolers and made from oak, this bench can also be made from pine. The kids at Clear Spring School used pocket screws to attach the top, but it can be nailed or screwed in place.

A Small Box
This straightforward box with a sliding lid holds pencils, crayons, or markers, of course. But kids can easily make it shorter, longer, wider, or taller to hold other treasures. Kids can also make the box from different hardwoods.

The T-Rex
Made from a single piece of 2×4, this figure is sturdy enough to withstand play. It has moving legs plus a movable jaw with fierce dowel teeth to provide lifelike animation.
