If you have ever wanted to make something from wood, something you will feel proud of, join us in Historic Deerfield at our colonial woodworking shop. You will learn about hand tools of the past and some of the techniques used by carpenters to make utilitarian and beautiful objects. Under the careful supervision of a woodworker you will use a hammer, saw, and other tools to start a special wooden project, one that you can finish and say, “I made it myself.” Come back on your own time and visit one of our historic houses to see the work of skilled carpenters of the past. Curriculum ideas and background information will be provided to help complete all of the badge steps. Badges are not included in the cost of the program but can be purchases at any GSCWM store. Open to troops and single girls with an adult.
