Green Woodworking with the WCC - June 2012

It's always a delight to have the WCC crews as part of their training session in June. This year we offered a Green Woodworking class - making a three legged stool starting with a tree.

The School has an agreement State Parks to use trees that have to be felled as "emergency trees". These are trees that pose a potential hazard to people on the trails and at campsites. For this course we started with two good sized Douglas Fir logs and this crew sawed, hewed and rived to make blanks for the legs and stretchers.We used a couple of fir board that we'd sawn out of logs earlier in the year.

This class had a lot of fun and worked really hard to complete the stools in the four day class. I hope the big grins come across well in the slideshow.
