Ribbands and Spokeshaves

Bryan hones
his spokeshave skills.

'Bryan, Ian and Stanayah used the spoke shavers on the frames. Brigith and Chico shaved wood. Rashid and Dan steamed with wood frames to make the shape of the boat. We also made frames for the other boat. Chico also made many other things.'
By Brigith Yanez
Ian readies the molds for beveling.

It's important to always sign one's work.

Don't mess with Brigith.

These whitehalls are starting to look boatshape.
Dan, Rashid and Chico
are ready.

Proof Jeff doesn't just drink coffee
while the students work.
