the advantages of wood shop.

Yesterday in wood shop I neglected to take photos. My 7th and 8th grade students have decided to help the school with our "social media presence," so in addition to gluing shaker box sides and sanding parts for making hand bells, we used clamps and sticks to make a tripod to hold an iPhone so that interview videos could be taken. One student is taking still photos and another video clips of woodworking in action.

The exercise revealed one of the many advantages of wood shop. No tripod? Make one.

My first, second and third grade students worked on making toy trains, and are very excited about their work.

Around the shop, I'm getting ready for Dillon Ryan from Fine Woodworking to come and take photos for an article about hinges for wooden boxes. Dillon will the third editor from Fine Woodworking to come here to visit my shop, with Tom Begnal being the first in about 2006. The photo above is from that visit.

Make, fix, create and make the case that others learn likewise.
