Guild of Oregon Woodworkers
A local daycare came calling. Success has a way of doing that. They (the tight-budgeted non-profits of our community) seek us out now. This organization operates several daycare centers in the Metro area. Their “clients” range in age from just 6 weeks old to 8 years of age. They function mainly with the co-operative efforts of their moms and dads along with a small paid administrative staff. The boost that the children receive in learning, nutrition and love is just a fantastic thing to see. We were more than pleased, honored really, to help these folks out. The hook that really got us was a request for a child-sized woodworker’s bench, to be scaled to a preschooler’s height: a real bench with a real vise and storage for “tools”. Add to that a rolling, lockable storage cabinet and a bi-level play structure and our crew was busy for months. The payoff….well just look at those smiles!
