#classroomtables got new #labels. Students can choose their adventure during stations, can be grouped by a name or task. Great way to bring personality into the classrrom. Now to rename my room itself. Maybe thinking #STEMstudio.

This Week in the Shop: The Library Book Nook

This Week in the Shop, I build a library book nook for my school. My school librarian came to me with her coffee bar theme for a renovated library and she wanted a circular book nook to take advantage of a certain space in the library. This book nook had to incorporate a column and reclaimed table top, be made under budget (roughly $500), have a professional look, design and materials. [ 432 more words ]

I will be there, will you?

A reminder that our Leesburg store will be open till 7pm this evening. Also wanted to let everyone know we will begin milling this 25' long log tomorrow for a conference table project next year. So if you have wanted to see in person come on out to our Berryville location and watch Wood Lohr slab up this massive tree. We will begin mid day tomorrow weather permitting, you can call 540-955-9522 if you want to know if we are cutting before you make the trip. So come on out and check out the biggest slabs around!
