My grandson needed the bone structure for his school prodject.
I really didn,t know how we were going to do it but in the end it turned out reasonably well.
He recieved a mark of 75 % so he was happy.
All the comment she made was the foot is to wide ! As if we didn’t know?

Cool! You should have told her that it was patterned off of Bigfoot’s prints!

Great job and you should have told her where to put the foot and the crap grade. Good job sir.

I think that deserves better than a 75%

For a few feet of wood this is really a step in the right direction…..(Snare drum and Cymbal crash!)...No seriously…. very creative and well done.

I think a 75 is not a fair score! Very unfair!

75 is way too low…people don’t understand the work that is involved…

Loos like a great job.
If he got a 75 for that much work I have to wonder what was done better. Somehow, I am guessing that school does not have a shop class, so the teacher does not have a clue the time and work it would take to make it.

As a school teacher myself…I give it 100% in both effort and execution.

“I once knew a man with a wooden leg, named Smith. He never did tell the name of his other leg.” Seriously, nice work. A cool project he’ll remember for a long, long time.

Well, I’ll bet your son has a leg up on the competition now.
