I wanted to show some of my students’ work. In my 8th grade class, the students each make a wooden box. I have found that if I allow them to custom finish the box, I get some amazing results. Each year, students get more creative because I show them some of the finished boxes from previous students.

This is how to make the box. My videos are long because they are for students who have never used some of the tools.

I just wrote some stuff on your home page but I was going to say that your students come up with some pretty cool box designs, some of them I would never have thought of. I’m at awe at the utube stuff for your students. The posibilties are endless. later bob
