Woodworking for Children

Here are a fascinating article and video in the NY Times about teaching woodworking to children and all the issues that brings up. I’m not sure if this is behind their paywall or not. My favorite quote, “Tetherball is more dangerous than the shop.” This will spark lots of conversation, which I think is badly needed. Despite shop class in schools becoming a thing of the past, it’s nice to know there is still such great interest in woodworking for children (and adults).
