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.

I don't even want to describe how I got to this point.

Zebrawood table gets an #epoxy @ecopoxy sealcoat. Love, love, love how smooth this went on and the color pop. Too bad I will sand it down again in another few coats!

Gosh, that makes me so proud to say that. I love being a teacher.
