    Family Woodworkers in Vancouver, BC ?

    Do we have anyone, hobbyist or pro, who lives in or around Vancouver BC, who could give a simple little demo to a group of girl guides? I'm not talking about handcut dovetails; I'm talking about showing them the difference between a hammer and a wrench.

    Thanks,

    thx larry. Yeah, Drew lives on the island like me, about 3 hrs from me by car. I need someone on the other side of the water, on the Vancouver side. The island is a ferry ride from Vancouver. and yeah, I haven't seen him post in a long time.

    Yeah, right back at you. I have not seen him either and I miss him.

    Cynthia, you brought back some old memories. I taught First Aid to the Junior High girls and scouts (no one else had enough nerve to do it so I got the job). We had some fabulous First Aid classes. You could hear us for blocks---and they learned the First Aid. I'm stopping here because I will babble on and on if I get started on this subject.

    Enjoy,

    How about trying Lee Valley in Vancouver and asking them if they would help you? I think they teach classes there and may be willing to do this for free in order to help promote the craft with future generations.

    They already talked to LV and got a "No". I just contacted another ww store and I'll see what they say.

    Cynthia,

    Try contacting the Pacific Woodworkers Guild located in Richmond. They will probably have members that would be happy to help. I am familiar with a similar association near me called the Northwest Corner Woodworkers Association.

    And in return the Girl Guides will? (sing a song, bring some cookies they made, etc)

    Just my 2 cents from raising kids, gets them more excited about it when they are not just receivers, but givers too.
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible
