Beginning WoodsTeacher!!! Hello all!

Hi all,

Just stumbled across this place and thought it would be a great way to expand my skills. My name is Rob and I am a 1st year industrial arts teacher. My background lies in the construction trades and auto fields. Fine wood working is a totally new experience for me.

I really hope to get a lot of information here and would love and accept any and all exceptions.

Like I said auto is easy, but the furniture and fine woodworking has me nervous.

Oh I teach 2 class Basic woods, 1class advanced woods, 3 classes Auto, and Drafting/Engineering. It has been a lot of fun and a a lot of work. Good news is that I have 10 years of teaching in other fields and have been a do it yourself type for years.

WELCOME TO THE FORUM

You took on a great endeavor. Good luck . You just may create a lifelong craftsperson (hopefuly many) from your student base. In this area, many shop classes have been eliminated and basic construction classes have replaced the hands on "wood shop".
