My Students

My students are a group of fantastic kids. They are hard working, eager to learn new things including tools in the shop. When our school got flooded all of our campus had to rely on donations from others.

Now that we are back and have made it through the flood, they are looking forward to having their own books, paper, and even new tools for the shop.

Our students are very adaptable and have shown us all that bad situations have great outcomes due to one's attitude.

My Project

The tools that I have wishing to be funded will impact our students tremendously. By teaching students how to cut, sand and assemble projects will start the students love for woodworking. By having a band saw, scroll saw and sanders donated out students will have the chance to experience woodworking at its best.

By being able to use the band and scroll saw for intracate cuts will allow students to learn the art of fine woodworking.

Having these tools at their hands, students will learn the process of how taking a piece of wood and turning it into a table, chair, or a name plate.

Our students are very eager to get going with these new tools, and with your help we can accomplish this.
