being a maker

This morning I start my class with Western Ohio Woodworkers, and I'll have about 30 adult students. There is an important human compulsion to be making. And yet, we have created lives for our children in which they are idly entertained rather than busily making things of useful beauty. Parents enjoy having their children engaged in their electronic devices. When we check on our kids and they aren't whining, we must must be doing something right, right?

Update. I was too busy today to take any photos. I had 43 students instead of the expected 30. So, it was a great day. And the club did better than break even on expenses.
