    Grandpa at Kindergarten

    I had the privilege to give a little talk about woodturning at my grandson's kindergarten class. I enjoyed being there and I hope that they all learned a little bit. My grandson asked to do this back before Christmas but we could not arrange a time that worked. I showed a log, a bowl blank, a rough turned bowl, my respirator, a bag of shavings, a finished bowl, a little turned duck, a screwdriver, and a winged bowl. During my little talk I passed around some of the items above and then after my talk they were all able to come up and pick up the log, the bowl blank. I have attached some pics.

    Wayne that's just great that not only he wanted you to do that, but that you could find the time to get it done. Great job grandpa.

    Great job Grandpa! Looks like it put a smile on more than just the grandson's face, looks like the whole bunch enjoyed the day.

    I've got one of those coming up soon too. I'm bringing napkin holder kits for the kids to make.

    Way to go Wayne, plant the seed in them young minds that they too can make stuff, it does not have to be all store bought!

    That is cool Wayne. Don't be surprised if someday one of them asked you to teach them.
