Day one box making...

This has been our first day of box making and just as I suspected, having made the jigs in the preceding class, we have made great progress already as you can see in the photos below. Tomorrow we will begin discussion of design, and continue making beautiful boxes.

According to one of my students, learning in the Army was as follows: Hear three times, do it twice. According to another one of my students among doctors, the rule of thumb for effective learning is "see it, do it, teach it"

Mario sent a photo of the chicken coop he's making with his son. A thing of useful beauty.

Make, fix and crate...

Thanks for the compliment. As my friend whose shop and tools we were using pointed out, we were not making a violin. It's more like "simple and functional."
