« Part 14: Antonio Stradivari and his woodworking skills Part 15 of Historic Woodworker Videos series Part 16: J.D. Fosdick, Father of Wood Burning »

Am curious with all of the creativity of woodworkers, that no one since the 1940s has attempted to a comic book for chldren on wood-working. Hoping to have a grand child myself one day, I decided to make an attempt of forest folk tale and a story appropriate for children in an animation format

As a first attempt at animation, it is as crude as the lumberjacks it portrays. But it offers a hint why the forest survives the outslaught of greedy woodworkers clear cutting a forest.

Unfornately, I have pulled from YouTube for editing.

Nicely done Tom. Just curious is there a reprint of the comic you referred to available? I am always looking for story books and such that refer to woodworking for my daughter.

Actually my inspirition was from the 1940s and a lot of vocational films about students and making their minds up about woodworking as a career. Check the link for a neat poster asking for lumber for the war effort. That drove me to my current quest .
