Heh, I used to be a Counselor for this Merit Badge when I was a Scout leader. Plumbing (which I also counseled for) was more fun! Can you imagine an 11 year-old with a propane torch, soldering copper pipe? Under CLOSE adult supervision, as you can imagine. They do pretty well, actually.

Boy, that brings back memories. I’ll bet 95% of all woodworkers haven’t done all that stuff.

I understand the world has changed a lot since the days of Baden-Powell and Boyce and the changes come faster every generation. I know that Scouts have had to adapt and evolve to remain relevant.
But it is GREAT to see that some emphasis is still given to self-reliance and ‘traditional’ skills.
Thanks for the inspiring reminder.
And no—I couldn’t answer all of those questions—espcially regarding wood species – without some research.
And I will be the first to admit that as being a weakness. Glad to see the requirements are so thorough.
