Box Guitars...

Yesterday I started a two day class with parents and kids to build box guitars. We will finish them today.

For some reason, all the adults are mothers with one grandmother. 

The parent/child pairs built the box first, then my assitant Darla and I helped to attach the necks. Each step offered design opportunities for the kids, and the adults got to help as you can see in the photo.

One of the mothers had never done any woodworking before, and one of the students is blind, bringing greater focus on the effective use of the hands.

I leave in one week to teach for five days at the Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking Sign up for a class.

Make, fix and create. Make the world a better place by learning to trust the character and intelligence nourished and expressed by the hands.
