Wood Needed for Middle School Shop Class:

2017 Norhtern Woods entries from Plymouth Middle School.I am a wood-shop teacher at a Middle School in the Twin Cities Metro. Three of my students were in the 2017 Northern Woods show. I am always trying to find ways to stretch our shrinking budget to keep our workshop going. I'm interested in the maple you have for sale through the guild. It would be for my students and I'd just be interested in the clearer stuff you have. We are doing cutting boards and I want to give them an opportunity to use nice material if they want to. If you still have the clear stuff for $2 and are willing to jump through hoops with me so my district can pay for it let me know! (they need tax information and to add you as a vendor even if it is just a one time thing). See the Craigslist ad for more information. Thanks!

Creative Craftsman Needed!

I'm producing an upcoming charity event for animal rescues called Rock 4 Rescues. We are looking for a craftsman to design and build a unique/custom dog house that could then be auctioned off for charity. Attached is a photo of one of the houses built already (Round Sauna) as well as two other cool houses that were featured at the state fair.
We have a small budget for materials ($250 max per house). We're hoping the artist/builder will donate their time and skills in exchange for a VIP ticket to our event.
The event is Sunday October 8th 2017. We need complete dog houses no later than the day before (Oct 7). Venue is East River Flats Park in Minneapolis, then moving to Sociable Cider Werks.
This is also a great opportunity for the artist/builder to promote themselves.
