Wednesday we used computers to research what our next woodworking project would be. This was due to it being very cold (for Florida) outside – 60 degrees.
We used Lumberjocks website as well as buildeazy for ideas. Not only were the students getting familiar with using a web browser, but they were getting excited about finding a project to do. We found 17 ideas and I will narrow the field down to about 3 or 4 based upon 1) what tools we have 2) the skill sets they need to learn 3) a project where the most can benefit. Projects that require a lot of ‘front end’ cutting or prep work also will be eliminated, such as a table with many angles to be cut on the table saw.
