Also this morning I met with the 4th, 5th and sixth grade students in their classroom to do bookmaking. As I mentioned, I hope bookmaking will become a more integrated exercise at CSS... one that can be done in the regular classroom at any occasion, and not requiring transportation to wood shop. Getting the core classroom teacher involved is key.
Then finally, this afternoon, I had the 7th, 8th and 9th grade students here at the house for a clay firing and tour of my home wood shop.
It felt good to be back working with the kids. Tomorrow I get my bulky bandages off and the doctor's report of significant progress.
|The use of the featherboard would have prevented accident|
|Featherboard and full depth push stick, greater safety!|
I plan to make a new special push stick that will ride in the space between the sides of the fence for even grater control in resawing wood. This operation can also be done safely on the bandsaw.
Make, fix and create...
