I just tried to post picture. It didn't work. I don't know why?

I love doing the Lamp project with my 7th grade students. It's their creativity and I've never had ant two lamps look alike. There arte many styles to come up with. I use the basic wood block base, as well as the Shadow box style.

Hello all, It's been some time since I've posted to this site. I hope you all are doing well!
I have the luxury of having a CNC, 3D printers, vinyl graphics and a laser engraver. As a lesson/project for my middle school students I want to have them design/modify their own board games. They can use vinyl graphic material, 3D print playing pieces, laser etch wood parts,etc.
Has anyone done something like this? Can you share your experiences? I would also like input as to how you developed a rubric for this type of project.

Topic: Project ideas for 5th graders??
Posted: Thursday, October 27, 2016 11:43:42 AM
I need some new ideas for projects for 5th graders. I'm trying to stay away from the scroll saws as a few of them this year have gotten some small cuts.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Great Job Mr. Kuhn!

I've used your casserole plans in the past. I really like the nut cracker plan.....

I have plans for a 12'/14' kayak. They are built with stringers and overlaid with canvas and two coats of latex paint. The blueprint type plan is quite large so I cannot email. PM me and we can discuss a copy printed and mailed...

Topic: Best worktable finish
Posted: Tuesday, February 12, 2013 7:10:23 AM
I have used the floor sander method as well. My benches were in really bad shape including the vises. I removed the vises and pushed all the benches together to sand them.
I bought from Delvies Inc. a 2 part 50/50 epoxy finsh. It's like 50 coat of varnish. Then like someone mentioned, apply wax and the glue peels right off.
I did this during the summer. I bought the 2 gallon kit and did 4 benches, and 3 counters and still have enough left over for touch-ups when needed.

If anyone is interested in having their students make musical instruments, let me know. I have been making them with students for years and have had success with them as young as 7th and 8th grade.


I make whistles with my middle school students, but any information you have on music instruments would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Bob
