On Saturday, Feb 1, Boy Scouts from Maiden, troop 303, Hawk patrol, came to FCW for instruction in a basic woodworking technique.
Rick, one of FCW’s woodworkers showed four of the scouts how to create overlapping joints in wood strips. Starting off with safety, instruction followed with the basics of the table saw, then how to create lap joints (without using a dado). The eventual project is to create picture frames.
The workshop lasted three hours and terminated with pizza and snacks. Additional instruction will be on Feb. 8, then another group will be later. This is FCW’s first direct workshop with Scouts. This troop came by the December Open House and were interested in numerous activities at FCW. In addition to woodworking, we hope to help Scout troops in the region with Ham Radio, Electronics, Robotics and other activities of interest.
