Never Work with Animals or Children!

Two Happy Woodworkers

Finishing my Project

For over 12 months the Shed has been saving timber offcuts for the Erina Before & After School Care Group.  This resulted in us being asked to visit them during the school holidays and supervise a 'woodwork session'

They say in the classics, "Never work with animals or children" and this saying holds very true.  Apart from having no work benches and having to rest on garden seats in the school playground many of the children were much more interested in  chasing spiders  and other creepy crawlies for their specimen jars,  playing in the sand pit or making their own masterpieces from scrap timber.

Those who did attempt the serviette holder project managed to end up with a high quality job in a reasonable time and with a chance for the better ones to finish the job by spraying them they went home well pleased with their afternoons work. 

Next time it will be another members turn to experience the joys of keeping 15 -20  6  to 11 year olds' occupied for an hour using hammers and nails!
