Thanks William, with the loss of wood shop in our schools its important to find new ways to get our kids involved in woodworking activities.

That is a great story, William. It is great that they are teaching kids the joy of creating something themselves. There is so much that is learned from these experiences that they will keep with them the rest of their lives. Besides the time with you, they will also have the pride and sense of accomplishment that goes with making a project. Hopefully this will inspire them to do more.

I am usually not a fan of HD myself, but this story shows me that there is still some hope that these big companies still care about children and the future.

Thanks for sharing..
Sheila
