You may not have heard of Belmont Hill, an independent school near Boston. They have a strong woodworking program and are members of the New England Association of Woodworking Teachers and will be hosting the next meeting of the organization.

One of the interesting things about Belmont Hill is that as part of the graduation requirement, each student carves a wooden panel that remains as part of the school. It is a tradition that they started with the school's origin in 1923. You can search through an on-line data base of student panels and find some wonderful work. The photo above is of one of their students at work. The panel shown below is by William D. Elwell, Belmont Hill Class of 1927.
