Mr. Hughey is the most even tempered teacher I have ever met! He just keeps the same expression on his face as he goes from student to student. No matter how annoying or involved the problem might be he just remains objective and doesn't rush one student to get to the next.
All sorts of interesting things have been built in this shop.
On Wednesdays from 3:00-5:00 the public is invited to use the shop for personal small projects. Randy is there but he just supervises. He isn't there to hold your hand or become your personal assistant, so you need someone with you that knows how to use the tools...that is why I took my boys with me!
They have both taken Mr. Hughey's class and know how to use all the tools! Here is the pile of boards we are working on for paneling in Ben's room.
They are actually sold at Home Depot as cedar "fence pickets". During previous trips to the shop we've sanded them, used the jointer to get one of the side straight, and then used the table saw to get the other side straight. This week, once we got the okay from Mr. Hughey, we used a dado blade to cut an overlap along the edges of the boards...
...and then routered a bevel...
Unfortunately we did not get them all done and had to bring them home for the summer. Next school year I will have to take them back to finish the job.
On the positive side Levi finished his project for his class...a entertainment center for his room to hold all of his game systems and tvs build out of Black Walnut taken from my Dad farm.
And here it is with everything in it
Good job Levi!
As far as the garden is concerned I did the minimum. Gray and gloomy again
