One of my sister’s Grandsons took Woodworking at his high school this year.

He made some real nice things, & I couldn’t let this chance go by,

of showing off what he made to all of you fellow Lumberjocks.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This is a regulation size baseball bat. I think he did an excellent job for a beginner.

His instructor also told him so.

Jared is 17 years old, & a Junior in a central Minnesota High School.

Dick,

This is amazing. I don’t blame you for posting this. You have every right to be proud of him as these are wonderful projects especially given his age. He must be participating in an excellent program. I have one of the projects that my youngest son produced in shop class. It was a simple car bandsawn from basswood about 6” long, painted blue with some buttons for wheels. That is the typical product that is coming from the local high school program.

This young man should do well if he decides to follow in your woodworking footsteps.

Thanks for the post and for the story behind it.

No I can’t take a bit of credit. He lives about 200 miles from here.

I think he has a very good instructor.

My sister told me it might be a genetic thing, who knows? ;o)

What fun it must be to see him make these thing, I hope he continues we need a younger generation of wood workers. I love the clip board I use one myself and now will make one. Do you know if he purchased the hardware or dismantled another clip board?

yah that clipboards has me embarrassed about the one that I made a couple weeks ago – I just took a piece of thin plywood and stuck one of the clips on it… Now I’ll have to make another one.
(and I purchased my clips from Lee Valley)
