Make: Asks is a weekly column where we ask you, our readers, for responses to maker-related questions. We hope the column sparks interesting conversation and is a way for us to get to know more about each other.

As a young boy I helped my dad build a picnic table for the backyard. It was the first time I could reliably swing a hammer, and I even chimed in on some of the design elements. It was the first project I did alongside dad, rather than being an observer and the tool gopher.

This week’s question is a special Father’s Day edition: What was the first (or a memorable) project you did with your father that could be called a collaboration, or one where you played an active part?
