Seeking a volunteer to help with a non-denominational Christian ministry near Phnom Penh, Cambodia called Jumpah. Since 2006, Jumpah has operated a vocational training center for woodworking with a dual purpose – (1) to train young men and women basic skills in woodworking that make them employable locally and (2) to operate a small shop where operating profits would support this mission and the greater Jumpah ministry – AIDS hospice, orphanage, and school.

The wood shop has many western tools and several locally purchased or manufactured tools. They have experience in turning, routing, assembly of chairs, desks, and cabinets, intarsia, and scroll sawing. Some examples can be seen on my LJ site.

If there is any interest in serving 3 – 12 months in advancing the WW vocational center and its mission, I would be happy to provide an intern request with more specifics as well as contact information. I hope this is not outside the bounds of etiquette for the blog.

Julie, thanks for the blessing. I looked at a couple of projects on your site. You used piano-type hinges for the cleated upper cabinets. Had not seen that before. Also I like the au natural barnwood table – a nice design using rough timber and rounds. I like that a lot and may try that soon, after my kitchen remodel. Doing a full-court press on that this weekend.

Best to you.
