Woodworking Workshops and Your Support

Some of the student tools we've been lucky enough to acquire.
Hopefully many of you out there have been able to attend the woodworking workshops that I've been lucky enough to be able to present through the support of the  Landmarks Preservation Resource Center. I've been working to make those a hands on learning experience for everyone who attends, and have it be a fun learning atmosphere. Having tools for everyone to use for the projects has been one of the challenges and I've been working to collect tools for four student tool kits. The goal of these tool kits is to have enough tools so people don't have to wait and share too much and to provide interested people with the opportunity to use hand tools in ready to use condition. As the diversity of the projects attempted has increased a wider range of tools has become necessary. Also I have some new opportunities to provide workshops with a longer time format allowing more in depth learning, something I've been wanting to do for a long time.

Both this wider range of projects and the opportunity to go more in depth have increased the need to have complete tool kits for learners. To fund this idea I've started a fundraising campaign with GoFundMe, an online fundraising site. If you've attended one of the workshops, or even if you haven't, support craft and learning and donate something to help us get people on the road to learning woodcraft. Donate now at http://www.gofundme.com/tnywtoolkits and thank you!

Thank you and best regards,
