Another group of grads...
You've already seen the time-out stool that was built in my last Intermediate Woodworking class, but there were some pretty nice projects completed by everyone else, as well.
We worked on Box Joints for a full evening, setting up a small saw with a dado blade, so that everyone had the chance to complete a small box.
And while most stuck with the 3/8" fingers, one woman attempted making a box using the width of the blade as her slot. That is a hell of a lot of cutting!
It turned out so perfect, I had her autograph it. Now it's hanging in the shop, on permanent display.
This last class of Basic Woodworking students really stepped up their game; I have to say they might have been one of the most creative groups I've had in the shop in a long time. Some of it came out of necessity; as in the box shown below. The corners on this box were doctored up a bit, due to an unfortunate sanding incident.
This is one of the coolest breadknives ever made.
Apparently I missed the memo on posing like a thug.
The funny thing is - although they were rocking the thug-thing, these two were both incredibly creative, sweet and pretty damn good with wood.
