Our third set of woodworking classes came to a close on June 13th with chair making at the Bannings’ house. It was a complicated project but utilized many of the skills the kids have learned with other projects, and everyone loved the final product. Here’s Bruce’s instruction poster.
And here’s a look at how the class went.
I love this picture of Finn.
The kids really needed a break in the middle of class since the project took longer than others. Ezra and Jack built a little train track.
Back at work … Amelia and Bruce.
Sofia’s always focused on the task at hand.
The last step was sanding. Finn liked using the electric sander although with all that hair I’m not sure how he saw what he was doing.
Here are a couple of samples of the chairs. These are Jackson and Bella’s.
Our boys did a few enhancements on their chairs over the weekend that followed class. Finn decided to stain his and Ezra painted.
And just like that we have our first furniture for the clubhouse.
