Will have about 15 students ages 12-14. 3 hrs/day for 5 days. Not much time. I'm thinking: something simple on the lathe, maybe a 2 part mallet. I'm not much of a turner, though. I can't hollow out something like a cup without it grabbing.
Also thinking some sort of box, still deciding what kind of corner joints. Someone suggested using hand tools but I'm wondering how one cuts precise enough to avoid gaps in the joinery.
Anyway, maybe some of you have ideas for me? TIA
