BSA projects
« on: April 15, 2021, 01:31:20 PM »
here is a woodworking merit badge project.  making grunt sticks, to raise worms out of the ground.  got to cut (rip) boards with a hands saw, and use hammers and chisels, tape measure and square.  



 

shop area a little cleaner.



 

 

lots of noise and activity in the shop.  no worms or boys were harmed in the making of this movie.  any and all free free to add to the thread with any youth organization or activity.

we made 5 benches in 2 hours.  only one minor injury and it was a grown up.  had to make something using a mortice and tenon joint.  we voted and decided to hand cut the legs.   :D

some walnut seats with maple legs,  and one chose all ERC.

Looks like fun. Bet they were glad there was a Doc around when that pull saw got out of control! :D Which reminds me, I need to check the stocking in my shop FA bag.

OK, maybe I am the woodcutter now.
I can work with wood, but I am NOT a Woodworker, yet.

First Aid Merit Badge opportunities abound in the wood shop! You should have a couple of Tenderfoots standing by to render aid.  :D

the injured dad is an electrician by trade.  the scout came in and told me what happened.  could not find the dad.  I thought maybe he had already gone to the ED.  he was already at his truck wrapping it with Kleenex and electrical tape.  all survived.  we spread out and they were out on the drive, and it had started to get dark.  the scout is the youngest and smallest, and is always trying to show he is as fast and strong as everyone ese.  his dad is in the military.  It was another scouts dad helping him.  lessons for all, and part of the value to the scouting program.  IMO.

 Ouch  :o , that made my stomach turn  :( . I don't have a problem if it's me that gets hurt but when it's someone else it's hard to take.

Well done Doc!  Providing opportunities for woodworking and first aid.  These are both important skills for a scout.  Maybe next time you will have them cut the legs off on the mill.   ;D :D
