The life and times of the Godfrey ten.

Wood Working 101

Dorian & Alli took a couple classes each semester at Soldotna High School this year. One class they took this last semester was wood working 101. Now I was never fortunate enough to take wood working, although I did take motion pictures, science fiction, and spirit club. All of which have helped me immensely get where I am today. Just look at my Youtube videos!

Every week I would talk to them about their projects and how they were going and get they typical teenage response, “good”. Everything is always “good”. Specifics do not exist, and if you try to get specifics, you get attitude. And me and attitude don’t get along, so I live with “good” for the most part. I tell you all this so that you can see what their definitions of good is with the following picture examples.

At the end of the semester they brought their projects home, and I was somewhat impressed… with Alli’s. Dorian’s was another story. They both decided to make a Costa Rican inspired coffee maker due to our recent trek south of the border. Both Tra and I thought that was a fantastic idea, (even if it was my idea) and we were very excited to see the finished products. So I have enclosed pictures of the finished products.

Alli's great color, just overall great product. Can't wait to use it.

And now Dorian’s:

It takes a little more vision to get Dorian's concept here.

Maybe from this angle..... nope.

At least he got the "DUKE" sign done, that's something.

The good news, they both passed. The bad news Dorian’s looks more like firewood than a coffee maker. Apparently there was limitation on what tools could be operated by the students, therefore Dorian “DUKE” Godfrey wasn’t aggressive enough to get the teachers attention and missed out on some cuts. But fear not people, dad and him are going to get it done, before we move to Costa Rica. If you are really nice to us and comment, you may get one for Christmas, if we finish it by then. Also, I will do a youtube video of us making coffee in one of them soon, now I got ya really excited.
