Thank goodness for Moms, who are so good at saving things from our childhood. In this case, we’re talking about one of the first woodworking projects that George ever made, way back in his junior high school days. Here’s a throwback to how George got started in woodworking, leading to what he’s doing today. Although it was a simple project, it included a variety of woodworking tasks, all done by hand.
For George, Mr. Mathis was more than his junior high shop teacher, he was a mentor, and had a huge impact on George becoming the woodworking instructor he is today. If you had an influential teacher in your life, please take the time to tell them about the positive effects they had on you.
The simple tray in this video shows the importance of holding onto some things your kids have produced over the years. How great it is, as adults, to be able to look at these items, and remember the paths they helped us get started on.
