I hear ya It seems a bit mean but it got the point across and he learned. My room was always clean as a kid because I made fishing lures in my room..Spinners and crappie jigs and buzz baits etc. I was grounded a lot because of false stories my sisters made up (not kidding) So I made fishing lures..I tied flies and all. I had a good set up and a quiet place for sure. All my toys would fit in 2 brown paper sacks. Kids today have way more toys. Of course the toys I have now take up much more space Instead of fishing jigs I reload ammo now..Every now and then I turn out a jig or 3. My grand kids ask to make a "bullet" and I tell them if you are good today I will let you make what you want.
