The Boy has decided he would like to have a go at building some structures. Being a clever sort of fellow, he decided to first find out if he could make a small box out of wood. Myself, I was never so sensible: the first thing I ever launched myself at was an ore car, which I failed to enter into the Model Railroader 50th anniversary contest as it never was more than an underframe.
As it happens, he has some talent, and turned out a pretty nice little box on his first try. He then parlayed his little box into a fruit stand. The camera is a merciless judge, and yet, this little model stands up just fine to my eye.
