Default My youngster taken an interest :)

but he is too little to engrave so got him on mill instead.. kind of

His brother and himself each picked a design and he had to sit through the cad with me.. then prep all his own wax. I ran the mill of course then he cored his own fingerhole and is the proud owner of his own 100% wax ring

Full blogpost with more images here , http://digital-jeweller.blogspot.com...-jeweller.html


the designs

they been told they each need to fork out $10 to get a brass casting





and the output

Good job!
One of the toughest parts of being a parent is teaching the tough lessons.
It is too easy to just let them slide, then they end up not being able to handle difficult situations.
And life is full of them.
Nice to see the future artists first steps.:-)
