If you have read some of my blog you will already know that my grandson is partners with me on a redo of the workshop. As we worked on it this summer we (his parents and grandparents split the cost) to send him to a 1 week school at the New England School of Architectual Woodworking located in Easthampton, MA. The class was Basic Woodworking. He was to gain experience in many aspects of woodworking but focusing on the safe use of power tools, i.e. table saw, jointer, thickness planer etc.
Tyler had really never built anything special before he attended. During the school he was able to practice his new found skills to build this memory box. The school operates year round and provides the training that unfortunately is no longer available in our high school systems here in Western Massachusetts.
The box is made of maple and cherry with cherry splines at the mitered corners. I think he did a great job. I am extremely proud of him. Since he is my partner in this shop and since his name is almost the same as mine, Tyler Kenneth Fitzpatrick, I thought it appropriate to post his work here also. Thanks for looking.
