My Project

This powerful tool is a game-changer, enabling students to gain experience working safely with a professional grade cutting tool, and enabling me, as their teacher, to more efficiently cut and prep materials for student projects. This time-saving tool will allow our class to work on a greater number of projects by improving efficiency all around.

I constantly seek ways to empower my students to create more with limited materials.

This band saw will revolutionize our woodshop, enabling the use of smaller, delicate pieces. Students can craft intricate items like serving trays and jewelry boxes; the options would be endless. This tool would expand the student’s creative possibilities and bring their project ideas to life.
