Greetings fellow woodworkers! It has been a while since I last posted anything here, as my current job as Woodworking Studio Manager for the Chestnut Creek School of the Arts, in Galax, Virginia, has kept me very busy. I am writing this post today to put the word out that the school I work for is in need of woodworking tool donations. I know that as a whole, woodworkers are always excited to pass on knowledge to other folks who are interested in the craft, and our school exists to grow and perpetuate the various aspects of the craft in the South-Western Virginia region. We work with all ages and experience levels of students in all manner of woodworking; From school kids to the elderly, from carving and sculpting to furniture and instrument building. At this time, we are still in need of obtaining a variety of hand tools, particularly carving tools and luthier tools, planes and small power tools. If any of you have tools that you’d be willing to donate to the school, as a non-profit I could provide you with the In-Kind Gift forms that you could use to get credit on your taxes for your contribution, I would also be interested in knowing of any funding sources for tools acquisition, either granting organizations or others. Additionally, if any of you has the desire to teach here in Galax, let me know and I can get you the necessary paperwork. I thank you for your time in reading this!
