My 6 year old son enjoys helping out. I made him a bench, got him a few planes (#4, couple blocks) an electric screw driver, Veritas gents X-cut saw, and some other basics. He loves planing and sawing. I'll have him saw parts for me to length, adding an inch for me to saw again later after he's not looking. He does pretty darn good. It's fun watching him work. I just recorded a video of him the other day, wish I could post it on here.
