Hey Lane:

Good for you! I couldn’t think of a more admirable Profession than a Shop Teacher or for that fact ANY kind of teaching that involves “Technical Trades” of ANY KIND.

Our (Mine Canada , Yours USA) Countries are suffering the consequences of “You should be a Doctor, a Lawyer, an anything, (NO offense intended for those that are) other than a “Tradesperson”.

In my Humble opinion Tradespeople are the “Salt Of The Earth”!! NOTHING would get built, repaired, serviced, etc. without them! North America has a SEVERE shortage of Skilled Trades People. Yes! Times are a little tough right now and everyone is hurting somewhat.

I just thought of something that might be of some assistance to you. Highschool …..a while ago on LJ’s I thought I was seeing a lot of the same type of projects, surroundings , shop tables etc. so I clicked on a few people, which became MORE than a few Dozen…LOL.. and I noticed something similar???? BUT! As a Good Teacher might do (tooldad …LOL…) I’m NOT going to tell you WHAT. I’m going to make you look for IT.

Go to the “Projects” page. On the Left side you’ll see “Popular Tags”, go to the botttom, click on “view more tags”. A screen will come up …”Most popular project tags”....look for “wahoo” (Yes Lj’ers we have a “wahoo tag”), click on that tag and you will see MANY Projects pop up.

OKAY! OKAY! I’ll spill a little …LOL.. It will go back OVER a period of 1,000 Days! “Wahoo” is Wahoo High School in Wahoo, Nebraska. These LJ’ers (including “Cornhole Project”) are ALL High School Students!! In fact their Teacher is also on here, “JonH” I think he’s very proud about what his Students do in the way of Woodworking. Good for you JonH!!!

Maybe you should look for him and make him a Buddie (OOPS! Is that Politics?) ;-} He might be able to give you some good advice??

Have fun ALL! Lane. Now you know who I am, if I can be of assistance in any way don’t hesitate. On Here or a PM.


PS: Welcome to Lumber Jocks!! I had a look at your Mission Style End Table. Nice Work Lane. Keep it up!
