Conservation Project: Help construct several Purple Martin Houses for Camp Snyder. These are large, complex bird houses and this project not only benefits camp, it offers a perfect opportunity to use a variety of shop tools. As you participate in this session, you will quickly see why people choose Michael’s Woodshop to work on group projects and larger projects.
Bluebird Box: This is a classic project and will result in a very attractive bird house that you can proudly paint and mount at home. This project is generally recommended for Scouts BSA age youth and is a great project for the Woodwork Merit Badge. It will give participants the opportunity to learn/practice many skills and techniques that are used in projects for all age groups in the shop.
Cheese Board: This is a fun, useful project that you will enjoy for years. This project employs a number of tools, allows for some personal creativity and is an excellent example of how to make great use of left over lumber from other projects. Because of the drying time, the final coats of finish will need to be applied at home (finish and sandpaper will be provided).
Mom’s Tool Box: Another classic project with a fun twist. This project will employ a number of common tools and techniques and will show how jigs are effectively used during shop activities. In addition, we will make use of one of our newest shop tools, the CNC machine, to personalize your tool box. You can use our standard text of “Mom’s Tool Box” or you can substitute your first name in the text line. Once you see the CNC machine in action, you will quickly imagine a wide range of fun ways to use this machine.
