a Quick tip...

I have a box making tip in this month's Fine Woodworking, p. 14. It is about using spacers to stabilize a box while the lid is being cut from the base. Read the article in Fine Woodworking Magazine Number 270, September/October 2018.

Readers interested in putting woodworking back in schools might enjoy an article I wrote for Encounter, Education for Meaning and Social Justice, in 2006. It was written less than a third of the way into my teaching at the Clear Spring School. The article opens with these words:
"Woodworking in school — with real tools, real materials, real work, and making real objects — turns abstract concepts to concrete, experiential learning."
These words are still true. You can test them yourself and in your own hands. Then use what you've discovered to set others to work developing wisdom. These days we need it.

Make, fix, create and assist others in learning likewise.
