Probably a high school shop class.

Or a fantastic coincidence.

High school shop classes.

Frankly I like it. I think it is a great idea for some high school shop teachers to have his or her students post thier projects on this web site. It stimulates confidence and just maybe a desire to create something positive.

My only beef is that there aren’t more positive comments on such projects. I’ll try to do a better job myself…........

My thoughts exactly. Probably a class and several students posted their results. I don’t see anything wrong with this.

I always try to respond with a simple “That is a nice …” to projects. I think everyone needs the encouragement no matter what their skill level.

I agree with the last two posts. I like to see the projects of students. I went to an all male private high school with no shop classes of any kind. I would have loved to had the opportunity to learn woodworking.

I think we should encourage high school students in woodworking. I believe it is a shop class in Wahoo,Nebraska. Obviously, these are probably first time projects but the kids have done pretty well.

Far to many high schools have dropped shop class.

BINGO ! If we want to see sites like this one survive, then we need to encourage younger folks wanting to start woodworking.
If we dont encourage them, then who will?

I’m with you all. Kids need a pat on the back for doing a good job and trying something new.

Have your say...
