I'm not sure how many readers will realize how important this is in my own life. I was one of the founders of the organization, and we have made huge progress in only a few years. I also submitted the original design floorplan to the architect and was a consultant as he developed the building design.
Yesterday in my home wood shop I applied veneers to Baltic birch panels to make the tops of veneered boxes. I also spent some time updating my BoxMaking101 website, and adding a link to my BoxMaking101 blog that allows readers to receive new blog posts by email.
The new ESSA wood shop is amazing already. The photo is taken from inside the north wall of the machine room, and shows the bench room on the left, the reception/gallery area at center, and the lathe room at right. The machine room floor is designed with furring strips to support plywood. The electricity will be run in the floor and some cushioning from the resilient floor will make things easier for the knees, hips, and backs of our students.
Make, fix, create, and increase the likelihood that others choose to learn likewise.
