This almost makes me want to go back to high school, almost.

Im glad to se I hat you sill offer these classes.  I’m a retired shop teacher from NJ.  Schools here started to eliminate shop classes in the late 80’s.  I was one of the first to go due to a decrease in enrollment.  It has happened to me many times over.  Somehow the administration just didn’t understand that the shop classes serviced a portion of the student population that no one else could reach.

Maybe you should call me Festus, cause I'm real slow. I just figured out what that meant. For a couple of days now, I thought you wanted to give me a hug!

I wish I could take credit for the form but it was given to my classroom by a friend of mine.  He actually gave me a 2 longbow forms and 2 takedown forms.  Very generous.

We had a little set back today and didnt get as much done as we planned.  My class had to go do some carpenter work in our history classroom to install some trim around the windows.  However we did get the pattern cut out and laid onto the bow blank.  More updates on Monday

The Blank is cut out and ready for the wood rasp.  We have a small spot on the riser where his lams moved on us that I'm hoping I can fill with smooth on.  Please give me your thoughts and advice.
