7 days ago by Gary Rogowski | 3 comments »

I got involved building chairs with the Lumber to Legacy project in Albany, OR. Here’s the story in their local paper. Lumber to Legacy Some high schools kids helped us build this cafe chair design. I wrote to the paper explaining my involvement. “I wanted to respond further as to why I did this class for the kids. I love to teach and this was another opportunity to be with a group that doesn’t get the attention they deserve. Education in the applied arts is mostly for...

Teaching a seminar at The Woodworking Show in Portland, OR I know I am somewhat new to Lumberjocks, but I can already see that this forum is a gold mine of support, inspiration and community—my kind of people! It is therefore, my desire to do my part in this group of like-minded friends, by starting off an extensive educational series I’ve recently prepared entitled: “BEYOND THE BASICS—Taking your woodworking to the next level” The series will include many ad...

1113 days ago by darkhollow | 3 comments »

Craftspeople, Artists, Artisans! Are you concerned about the state of arts education in our schools? Does your craft have an application to primary or secondary schools subjects? My name is Rodney Hopkins; currently I am working towards my Master’s Degree in Education at Prescott College. Specifically, I am investigating the classroom applications of crafts. Since many minds are smarter than one, I am conducting a survey of craftspeople and artists to see where they have...

Good week for struggles and not-quite-there-yets in the woodshop this week. Three projects left the floor complete. The first, chalkboard that has been wind-blown, vandalized and otherwise destroyed three times. We’ll see if it sticks this time.

The Mobile Base (The Volleyball Court)

1343 days ago by WhiskeyWaters | 0 comments »

Pictures can be seen at my “professional” blog – www.woodshopcowboy.com Two weeks ago, my colleague and I had an interesting revelation. While installing a basketball hoop, we had extra cement. I had a shovel-ready stimulus bill waiting for him. It’s a empty tire (the rims lost to another project) with a wood bottom/plug. The metal thing in the middle is some sort of salvaged structural bracket which can hold a two inch pole of PVC or galvanized piping. Two e...

...have been thrown in so far. I’ve had about thirty kids place hands on it so far, including to visually-impaired students today. I didn’t expect them so I didn’t prep anything for them to do. After a little scrounging around, I was able to get them to do the sanding/masking work on the rims. Last week saw the finished paintjob. The blue paint took around three coats to cover well, while the yellow pinstripe was created using masking tape and Rustoleum Pro Yellow spr...

I recently returned from a visit to Palomar Community College in San Marcos, Ca to meet with the Cabinet and Furniture technology program instructors and take a tour of their facility. I mentioned that I was about 90% sure that I would be going there this fall (August 2010). Well, I’m not at 90% any more… ...

My woodworking education #1: Visit to Palomar Community College

1617 days ago by azwoodman | 6 comments »

Hey everybody! I just thought I’d start a blog about my experiences on this journey we are constantly on of getting our woodworking education. (As I write this entry I’m sitting in the car, in the parking lot of a Del Taco restaurant, in Indio, California.) I am at a crucial crossroads in my life right now; I’ve recently gotten married, I don’t have much school done, and I need to choose a career to support my wife and I as well as our future children… As...
