M&M's Anyone!

Nelson has been doing wood technology
(it was called wood work when I was at school) this semester and he came home with his M&M dispenser.
When he said he was making a gumball machine, 
I couldn't think what it would be like in wood. 
I think he's done a great job.
He also made this fruit bowl. I now have 3 of these!
A hinged box.
I'm not too sure what this is but he had fun using the lathe.
 
Nelson has really enjoyed this class. Who knows. 
Maybe we'll have a carpenter in the family one day!

Wonderful woodwork Christine.. I love the m&m's dispenser. I got a breakfast tray from woodwork this term, but Mr 12 kept the wooden box. I hope he keeps it up, it would be very handy having a carpenter in the family. Think of the quilt racks and spool holders!

Wow! What a great job he has done! It's so nice to see young ones making things by hand. Fabulous!

Well done Nelson, I love the dove tail joinery in the box.
I know what you mean Christine, I got three of everything too.
It is handy to have a carpenter or three in the family though.
Cheers R.

Hello Christine and Nelson,

Great woodwork projects, especially the box. Lots of detail in that. Nelson, hope you make Mum a quilt holder for Christmas.

Happy days.
Bev.

Each of the items looks amazing - love the M&Ms dispenser! - what a wonderful interest to have... better than sitting in his butt playing computer games, methinks x
