Trail to Eagle
For my Eagle project on September 19,2009,I created wooden portable planter boxes for Artesia Middle School because they had an organized wood shop room School's Early Intervention Program. The project took place at Tetzlaff Middle School because they had an organized wood shop room and a dexterous teacher, Mr. George Everett, who was my assistant.
First the scouts and volunteers cut the long pieces of wood with hand saws. The wooden pieces were sanded and squared in order to fit perfectly with each other. They were then assembled with nails by scouts, adults, and other volunteers. Wheels were later attached to the boxes along with a handle to make the boxes more ergonomical. Lastly the boxes were sprayed with any anti-pruning seal seal to prevent the wood from rotting.
Although there were some minor improvisation, I was able to make 6 boxes on the day of my project. The project was a great success and I thank all the volunteers who came out to help.I give a special thank to Mr. George Everett, I could not have done this project without you!!
