Boy Scouts from Troop 728 (my son’s Troop) met in the shop today to start working on thier Woodworking Merit Badge. We started off reviewing the requirements and going over shop safety. We then started a sharpening session with chisels, a plane iron and a cabinet scraper. We will continue sharpening on our next session – to bad we didn’t have Wayne & Tom on hand to help with sharpening! The boys learned some basics on using the table saw, miter saw and air stapler. The boys each built a basic cedar bird house. A lot to cover in a few hours! The boys did great. Below are some photos of thier progress. These may be future LumberJocks!
Finis for now – more to come!
