My students like to work with wood and woodworking machinery in our shop. They build an array of different types of projects, from doing a project for a teacher down the hall or making a bookshelf for their bedroom. We have several students that really get into doing stuff for themselves. But in some cases, they really enjoy helping others by fixing something for them or building something from scratch. I enjoy being in the shop helping my students figure out how to overcome little problems as they progress through the difficulties of their projects.
Our Wood Turning Lathe in our shop has been torn up for a while now and with safety in mind, we really need a new one. I would like to give my students a new Wood Lathe to use in the shop that would be safe to use and operable when needed. We would use a new machine more often if we had one. We can turn legs for tables or make small bowls too. Wood Turning Lathes help students be creative and produce beautiful projects too. We hope this project will be funded as soon as possible so we can get started "Turning".
