Johnathan decided to teach woodworking to thirty 4th-5th graders once a week and thirty 6th-8th graders once a week. He is obviously a brave man!
"What began with three hack saws, miter boxes made from scratch and some glue and sanding paper, has slightly evolved to a drill press (donated by a grandparent), clamps and circular sander. Hopefully it grows into something more."In this age of vanishing shop classes, it inspires me to see a group of kids eager to work with their hands to build something useful and fun. Kids haven't changed: our desire and commitment to help them learn manual skills has.
Big thanks to guys like Johnathan who are willing to take on tasks like this and enrich the lives of so many kids.
Check out these sweet looking menorahs they made. After building them they made some Mere Mortal whistles with the leftover wood. Oh, and look in the background of the group photo. Is that a WWMM logo back there?
