“Open Shop” Event – Building a Board Holder (Sunday, October 28th – 9am thru Noon)

1 Comment

This Sunday October 28th, 9am thru Noon, I will be hosting a “Open Shop” event in Renton, WA. The event is open to all that are interested. We will be running the saws, drill press and bench sander making several “Board Holders” from raw lumber. We glue and assemble at least one Board Holder. Great chance to learn some basic shop skills and specifically how to build the board holder. Parents need to be present for children to be in the shop. Send me a email and I will respond with driving directions. Space is limited, I only have room for a dozen people. There is no fee to attend and participate. If you would like to to take home the board holder you built, it is just the cost of the kit (34.95 + tax).

Finally got the shopping cart to work the way I thought it should. Got setup with the bank, Paypal, department of licensing, Fedex and a couple of vendors. Got the tools for the shop setup and had several dry runs building several kits to get the quality control out of the way. Lots and lots of little details. I turned on the new website with the shopping cart today. http://www.fredshands.com. So if any of you are in the market for a board holder for yourself or your school, check out the site . They make great presents!
