methods

 

Young children can absolutely use saws. Instruct them on how to use the saw with both hands and explain why the work is being done. Instruct the child to be careful if others come near them, and likewise instruct the other children in their responsibilities to give saw users ample space to use the tools without causing harm to themselves.
