Well I haven’t made any posts recently because honestly I haven’t had much time in the shop lately. A few weeks ago we went up to Kansas City to the Woodworking Show. My two oldest sons and I hit the wood working show while my wife and her mother went shopping elsewhere. It was a fun show and my sons enjoyed watching several of the presentations. They were amazed at the pen turning demonstrations as well as joking around with Chuck Bender and Glen Huey from 360 woodworking. In my mind this was another way to “Get Kids Woodworking”. The boys learned that once you start woodworking there are many, many facets of woodworking you can head towards. I had the privilege of talking to a young(er) woodworker there about a university in SE Kansas that is offering a woods program that sounds like a great program. I have to say I wish every university would offer a program like this one. I would be proud if one of my boys wanted to attend the Wood Technology Program at Pittsburg State. I feel extremely pulled to encouraging woodworking with kids. I have been trying to ramp up my Youtube channel with the Get Kids Woodworking videos. Just recently I was given many many cedar scraps that I am coming up with a couple projects for. I’m hoping that I can get some more time in the shop over the next couple of weeks and get some videos produced. I am trying to create these videos on a shoestring budget without great equipment and I have to say it is a challenge. I’m hoping my Patreon page will find a springboard soon so that I can invest in a camera and some upgraded software. I would really appreciate it if everyone would share the link to my page and help get the ball rolling.
Thanks for reading and have a great Mothers Day.
