This year, the coordinator of my daughters vacation bible school had an idea to create a contest between boys and girls to see who could bring in the most change during the course of the week. The change was to be donated to a worthy cause. She asked me if i could build a “scale”. Like any self respecting woodworker, i thought for a minute and replied….”if its built from wood, i can probably figure it out.” The result is a rather simple design made of mape and a tinge of walnut. It was a fun little project. Though it is not a swiss watch, i built a small sliding mechanisim into the “T” so that it can be adjusted to create a more accurate measure. The kids enjoyed it and raised over a thousand dollas.
Thanks for viewing.
