WoodshopCowboy

A Blog at the Crossroads of Sawdust, Teaching & Technology

WoodshopCowboy is a woodworking/teaching blog.

WoodshopCowboy showcases student projects, lesson plans, curriculum units, woodworking plans, woodworking projects, the coolest classroom technology and a look into a progressive, innovative classroom.

Mission: Make it safe & keep the rubberside down.

A pair of #endtables for my boys' matching bedset. A quick, easy project that came out like 100. Should I turn this into the next WoodshopCowboy tutorial or class?

If you are interested in your own one of these, just DM me. The Cowboy is taking commissions.
