Yesterday I turned small steeples of wood for the boxes that will hold collections of Arkansas woods. The chapel shape of each box, and the turned steeple are used as symbols to suggest to viewers that something sacred is at hand. The glimpse of turned hardwood samples through the windows will lure viewers to a state of curiosity and engagement.

Turning the steeples was easy. the precise fitting to the roof, just a bit more complex.

Next will come the final fitting of the doors, and inside shelves. I have been working my way rather slowly through this project and plan to have these boxes finished in time for a visit by members of the American Folk Art Museum.

Today students return to classes at Clear Spring School and my wood shop classes for some students begin on Wednesday.

Make, fix, create, and extend to others the opportunity to learn likewise.
