A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that I was going to be judging some student woodworking at the Minnesota State Fair. At the time, I didn’t know how many projects there would be, and indeed the number was down. The COVID-19 pandemic took a toll on shop classes last year. But even so, there were some really nice projects submitted by kids ranging from grade school to senior high. Here are just a few images of their efforts. These sorts of projects make me confident of woodworking’s future.
