Eric in Salmon Arm: Attached are a few pictures of the finished boat. Thanks for supplying us with quality materials for the project, and for your efforts shipping them to us in a timely fashion. We will be in touch come time for the next boat!
Eric’s boat was highlighted in Newsletter 60 – not looking quite so finished.
The Scouts have finally finished the boats we started nearly two years ago and wanted to get these photos of the boys taking them out on Beaver Lake earlier this month. It was a perfect evening to go out and the boys really enjoyed themselves. The sense of pride in their faces knowing that they build something that actually floated was great to see.
I would like to thank you again on behalf of the 3rd Douglas Scout Group for your generous donation of material to make this project happen.
Jeremy Smith has been a customer of ours for a long while and has made several projects with our wood for his woodworking blog Photocopier Reincarnations. Here’s a just a sample of some of his work, always adding some form of recycled wood or parts.
His Mission With Project Five
Woodworking isn’t his only passion, however, he has a degree in horticulture and would like to expand his degree to include Sustainable Tropical Forestry (SUTROFOR), a 2-year world-class Masters in Science program run by the European Commission.
With this under his belt he will be able to help farmers with their crops in ecologically damaged areas such as the Sahel in Central Africa, where malnutrition is a serious issue. More details are in the following video and on his funding page here.
Fund raising for his training can also be made by purchasing a bamboo cutting board.
“Help us help the farmers. Help us feed their families. Help us save their forests so their children can enjoy them too.”
