Joel’s Apprenticeship – Year 2 Joinery

Joel’s Apprenticeship – Year 2 Joinery

Another year for Joel at BCIT – Joinery Apprenticeship.  All went well; next year booked.

Nice to know that fine woodwork is not a dying art; nor is it gender specific.  Here is an excerpt from a letter I received from my Great-Niece, Vienna in Fort Fraser, BC.  Her comment on her Grade 10 Wood Shop Class:

In my wood shop class I built a rocking dinosaur toy and I am currently working on a hope chest.  There is only one other girl in my class and we work extra hard to show up the boys. They often tease me because I’m the smallest, and they know I’m tougher than them.  Every class I think of you guys!
