This desk was built by students with the help of a friend of mine who is a teacher in Maryland, Tim Ryan.
Tim is without question one of the best teachers I have know during my tenure of 36 years. Tim goes far beyond most teachers. He is not only a great teacher he is the best craftsman I have ever know. This is just one example of the type of work he has helped his students with over the years, note that countless hours after school were given up by Tim to help his student complete this project.
A salute to a wonderful man and a fantastic teacher!

Bob, Tim and his students did a wonderful job on the desk. It’s great to see a teacher that will take so much time teaching our students a skill that is fast becoming a lost art in this country. When so many of our schools have taken the shops and classes out of school. I first feel in love with woodworking in shop class at school and I too had a great teacher. Thanks for sharing that with us and pass on my “Thank You” to Tim and his students. A Great job.

God Bless teachers like Tim.
That shop class setting looks just like mine did and it was my favorite.
He is the reason there will be another generation of woodworkers coming up.

Thanks

That desk is fantastic. Tim did a great job in teaching those students. His work through them will last several lifetimes.

There is a modified saying- “Those who can, do. Those who can do it better- teach”. Tim is obviously one those who do it better.

The skills and dedication of Tim- and teachers like him- are the foundation of our craftsmen of tomorrow.

Thank you for posting this and thank Tim for all he has done for his kids.
