Wood Working

Building a chair or bench out of natural wood resources


Brad Curry

What can students do with some downed branches, tree logs, and hand tools during remote learning? A Lot. This session will go over a remote learning assignment done last spring that allowed students to gather up some tree branches from their neighborhood after a spring storm and use those branches to build a functional bench for them to sit on. The last video shows students finished project.
