|It's gonna look something like this|
The first project is going to be to build a version of sawing bench shown above. The skill emphasis in this project is primarily measuring and layout, along with sawing accurately. There will also be some hand planing and fastening using screws or nails. Everyone will also learn a couple of basic woodworking joints.
We'll have enough tools and materials for 8 people to work along and keep the bench they build. While it is a saw bench it's perfectly good for sitting too, as well as plants, or what have you.
