When My son, a 17 year old, junior at Millard South High School. Asked if he could have some help making a chair/bench with a lot of bending, in the legs and back. For his school project. I asked him; I don’t know are you ready for something that complicated. Of course he said, of cource I am. I was thinking to myself. I really don’t have time to make another piece of furniture right now.
To my surprise. For the first time he was really into it. I was thinking he wouldn’t reach this level of concentration until he was a little older. He has been working on this project for about two months now. He’s been working around 20 hours a week. Mostly on the weekends. I would have to say that I have never been more proud of him. He’s been working very hard. He also play’s on his high school basketball team, & he practices everyday. And most important he doing good academically. Here are some pictures of his different stages of his chair/bench. We are having a seat and back rest custom made out of black leather. They should be done in about a month. Thank’s for looking.
