The fellows had another full day carving, clamping, cutting, glueing, sanding, sculpting…Many new pieces are appearing in the wood shop with finishing work being done on pieces already begun. Julia is making a door with beautiful carving, Rex continues to work on his large bird sculpture – making lots of noise. Adrien is busy carving and sanding her piece, Zina is working steadily on her many pieces one-by-one, and Grant concentrated on things outside the wood shop today.
