Pushing wood is hard

June 6, 2012

"Adun was soo awesome today!! She deserves cupcakes courtesy of Mr Pratt and Shahada and Michelle. Michelle shouldn't get any but we're nice people so she should get 1. Adun planed and figured out you really have toput your weight into it. Shahada learned pushing wood is hard. Mr. Pratt learned how to lift wood. THE END... 4 now Bwahahahaha!!!!" By Adun Laniya

Master Plankers

Bryan planes cedar planking
June 5, 2012
"Bryan was startled by his own sneeze! Mr Gerstemeier actually did alot of work! He's not just another handsome face. (LIES! - about the handsome face) We glued planks and then nailed them. Bryan and Gersty cut out and spiled a plank.

As usual Chico was left in school by choice to be with his girlfriend. I guess love does those things to you...

Master Plankers

As for Stanaynay she got ate by a lion named Mustapha. We think she survived but she didn't make it to school. 

Brianna caulks the next plank to go on.

As for Gina, she actually worked today!! :-)

Rashid and Dan were master plankers and are planning on challenging Bruce and Nick to a planking show down. 

Brigith adjusts her plane.

It was another great day at boat building and it was so cool at 50 degrees."

Chico planed and planed and planed...

Dan cuts down a plank.
Brianna lays out a plank.
"Bryan put a plank on the boat. Brianna bandsawed better than Dan with a 16ft plank. She also spiled a plank. Dan and Chico worked with Bruce and Dan hit himself in the head with a shovel. Chico planed and planed and planed....."

A busy day

May 8, 2012

Brigith and Brian help bend a plank into place.
Sad Chico.
Beveling laps.
 "Today we worked on many different tasks such as bending wood, planking, putting floor measurements down. Others worked on planing wood, the table saw and bandsaw. We were always busy today, no time for rest. I guess that's because we couldn't meet last week for boats because Bruce and the gang were out of town. Also Dan broke a blank and his floor measurements are wrong. PLEASE CHECK HIS WORK!!!"

A tree was wasted

April 18, 2012

"Today we've done spiling. Though a lengthy process in the end it comes with great accuracy. Also we learn measuring is a hard process from some people. 

A cut will not come out good unless your lines are straight and clear. A tree was wasted today to do some mistakes"

All that was done

April 17th, 2012

Brigith and Chico balance working hard and having fun.
 "Today Dan broke 3 batons and recorded the wrong measurements on them ans well, but luckily Stanajah saved the day and checked his work. 

Brigith wore safety glasses and protective ear wear because she was cold. Brian assisted on the bandsaw with Chico and Brigith. Rashid accomplished a lot today. 

Mr. G just watched with his physics shirt. Ian recorded measurements and cut wood. Joel did planing and cut wood on the bandsaw."

Valuable skills

April 11, 2012

"Today we learned very valuable skills to apply to our life. We used a planer on various items all of which were wood based. Next we sat the wood down to be heated, using clamps we attached the piece of wood to the boat."
