For The Kids
















I would think most people who get hooked on woodworking (scroll sawing) often look for reasons to make sawdust. With that thought I jumped at this chance!

My sister in-law started a teach position where she is working with special needs children. With the county fair coming up, each of the kids where to make items to enter. So we came up with the idea of making some wood puzzles. As it needed to be related to our state (California) I cut two each of three patterns. We used a silhouette of the state, the brown bear (as seen on our state flag) and a quail (state bird). I cut out the puzzles and sanded the roughest spots and the kids took it from there. They finished sanding and then painted the puzzles. There were a few 1st & 2nd places. Each entry that received a 1st, 2nd or 3rd helped raise money for their school. Congratulations to all of the students for a great job!
