It is actually several years ago, and I didn’t know who this really was that came into my woodshop class and asked for our help. He just seemed like a nice old cowboy… but I won’t give it away. I found out the same way you will, by watching the video below (go here if you would like to download the video). The project took about a month for several students to complete. It was all based around a casino bucket of all things. Please feel free to comment.

While the video is loading… Being a woodshop teacher for the past 30 years has been a dream come true and while I could take retirement right now….what better job is there then this? My program was featured in WOOD magazine, “American Woodworker ” and we are featured on the CarveWright educational brochure. My program was also featured in a local publication called Prescott Women magazine.

Congratulations sir, kudos too, we need more people like you and more shop classes in schools. It is one of the things that got me into lathe work again.
