Working with Hands - James E. Price

  Working with Kids  

Fine joinery it was not
but I feel rewarded to
have had the opportunity to teach some kids how
to make bluebird houses.




It was the last day of their class and each child left with a completed bluebird house and a set of instructions on where to install it.

Every child was extremely attentive and I have to say that they quickly learned some basic unplugged woodworking skills which hopefully has inspired them to learn more about it later on in life.

Schools no longer teach woodworking skills and it is up to people like you and me to step up and engage children in the satisfaction of making a useful object with their hands.

This little girl quickly learned how to drive nails. I helped her hold the boards
in place and she did the rest.

Thanks to the National Park Service for sponsoring the woodworking class.
Those were some very happy children.
