Sam and Jason and I spent a very cheerful morning finishing up the wood-shop benches, installing a small fridge and cleaning up some of the tools. This is fabulous! Now the shop is fully loaded with benches all we have to do is build a fold down extension for the table saw so the cut wood has something to land on, and acquire and install a vacuum system to suck sawdust out of the tools. Sam brought in a planer, and will bring more of his tools to equip the place in a month’s time.
I’ll be making use of the shop in class for the first time next month, when our second session of summer school begins. My students will be able to learn how to craft panels and stretcher bars for their paintings.
