What a pleasure to have these Troop 728 Scouts in the shop working on their Woodworking Merit Badge. The boys are getting very close to completing the requirements. Having just returned from summer camp at Camp Pioneer in the Cascades, we identified a large service project to improve the archery range. We constructed 8 archery stands from cedar and plastic drainpipe. The boys used a combination of pocket screws and floating tenons to construct the stands. They each got some great hands on experience with the Kreg Pocket Screw Jig and the Festool Domino. I was impressed with how fast the boys became fascicle with these tools.
