Here is my students learning to plane and rip timber. Also using their planes they made.

Tool function and wood form! Your students are in the right place! What is the average ratio of men to women in your classes?

Very nice work. Great for them to use hand-tools and power-tools.

“You can’t finish if you don’t finish. So finish it, because finish is everything.”

I’m with you Andy! When I start a project I can’t wait to get back to it in the morning. Sometimes I take it in to the house before the finish is dry!! LOL!

I think when you know how and you know what you want it’s easy to get going!

Hey Tom. Male female ratio about 3 to 1 normally. This year I have 20 students and only 2 females. Normally 5 girls to 15 boys. The females are usually the highest achievers and attention to detail is often, but not always, better.

Glad you like the quote WS. I claim it to be mine but there’s nothing new. I once used Danska teak oil on a bed head and it came inside too soon. Stank for a week but I had a good sleep!

I would love to be an assistant in your shop! It a good feeling when you can give someone a life time of experience and then watch them put it to good use.

We are on our way to Tampa Florida today. Headed for the Hard Rock cafe to do a little gambling. Then I’ll be helping my son in law remodel his kitchen on Sunday while we are down that way.

Loved the video! Keep up the good work!

Thanks,

I taught Jr. College ( a 2 year program) awhile back (everything now is that?) And I had better than 50 % nurses in my first class. Thought it would be more pleasant to teach. Gave out my syllibus and most of themdropped my class. LOL!

Geoff didn’t get the prize. Bummer! But He did better than many of the competition!
