Got roughly three hours of work in today, and somewhat along on the project – kids got all the x’d pieces cut to length. Ran out of 2×4 even. Tomorrow plan on getting the rest cut down, and find a quick and kid-friendly way to create the lap joints and dadoes.
For those of you wondering, this project will be going very very slow. Its a tad quicker when a person don’t have to explain to/manage twenty children at the same time.
First time techniques – I taught the kids how to create a “story stick” – ain’t that what it’s called? Anyways, we transferred all measurements to a length of 2×4 and they are measuring off that. So, whatever that trick’s called.
-- make it safe & keep the rubber side down.
