Week #5 and we are moving right along!
This boat was fun to lift though we did miss a few students due to state testing and our very own WELS N Student, Andrew was out for the day. Katie and Ed express their amazement at all the work that has already been accomplished! Teacher Katie wonders though, where is Ed's hat?
Today the boat crew worked with the block plane to make the plywood bottom flush (even) with the side planks.
Here you see both Danielle and Jon making things happen today!
And Jon....using the block plane
Once the plywood was even with the side planks, the crew dabbled a little with the sander.
Danielle totally ruled at it---her stamina using the thing, despite the vibrations, was ever so impressive. See for yourself!
Jon was naturally skilled using the sander as well.....here's the evidence!
Continued work on the oars is carefully and thoughtfully carried through by Noah.
Phil here spreading the boat building education. Noah listening in awe and enthusiasm.
A great day spent at the workshop today!
