Wow i am in complete awe on the amazing work your son has done so far, looking at his work i kept thinking oooh he would make gorgeous trellises for the garden! Of course my mind wandered more and thought that once he started working on other metals he could make some really kick a$$ swords.  wow the possibilities are endless on the things he could make, tools, weaponry, cool looking headboards, gates, railings for porches, sculptures, wall art. as good as he is he can only get better with experience and the tools to work with!
Kudos to the mom for the awesome support.

Oh my goodness, what a inspiring little boy you have there!  He has done a fabulous job at learning a trade.  Wow!  Just imagine what he will do when he grows up!

People who take time to be alone usually have depth, originality, and quiet reserve.

He's in FIRST, right?
Then this sort of thing is comepletely normal. No worries.

When I was in highschool, I was in FIRST, and I dated a kid from our team who....built a flying lawnmower (I'm not kidding). We were all nuts and built all sorts of crazy/dangerous stuff.

I have to say, your son is very talented, and I hope he keeps up the good work.

Holy crap, your kid is awesome! And you're a pretty cool mom for letting him explore this without freaking out about it. I would totally buy his stuff for rendezvous... but make sure he gets a competetive price for his work. It's as good as any adult's.

i just couldnt not reply with something.. i too am in awe!
I soo hope i foster the kind of curiousity and creativity that you did, which caused him to decide to do this in the first place, in my own children. It is just amazing to me! So i know you seem to not want to take credit for being supportive, but we can all see that you obviously did something right!!!
His work is beautiful!
I am really in awe!

Wow! That is amazing. I learned to spin from the internet too, but I guess that is a lot less complicating. I wonder what his next hobby will be..  Tongue Cheesy
