Very interesting… I also read an article in a recent woodworking magazine about a club that sponsors a woodworking shop for members use…. but I cannot locate the article… anyone read it?

I wish more schools, both college level and the lower schools would start teaching the manual arts again, especially in North Carolina.

The article you posted was about Reidsville, Rockingham County and we use to live in Rockingham, Richmond county.

There were not, at the time we left about 6 years ago, any shop classes of any sort in any of the schools.

They were much more interested in filling the display cases with sports trophies for anything from Foot ball to the Roadkill sailing Championship!

Great idea, hope it works to everyone’s benefit. It was basically mandatory when I was in school to to take these type of classes (metal, sheet metal, welding, wood working, electronics), it was very beneficial to have taken these
