Today in the Clear Spring wood shop the 7th through 10th grade students with a couple 12th graders thrown in for good measure began scroll sawing puzzle maps of American territorial expansion. since we only have 3 scroll saws to keep such a large class busy required a second project, so we started making Sloyd plant stands from the Alfred Johansson Fundamental series 1890.
I have an internship student Dylan, who is working with me in my shop to learn the business and the life of a professional woodworker. Dylan is interested in turning wood and is working to develop a line of turned tops that can be sold in his mother's store. I'll show photos later.
