Default Girl Scouts project- Aloha

The Girl Scouts will be doing a study on Hawaii, so I thought I would make a few decorations for them. (but also functional items)

The first to come out of the shop is a scrollsawn set of the Major Islands, in relative scale to each other.

The big Island is about 12 inches at it's widest point, Kahoolawe is only about an inch long.

The stock is 1/2" cherry, I don't know what the finish will be yet.

Are the girls going to draw locations of cities, volcanoes and other features? Great educational tool.

Very nice Doug. I was a scout master for several years and always appreciated when the parents and grand-parents actually pitched in. We had one fellow, who's son and grand son, both Eagle Scouts were long since out of scouting, but he still pitched in with the troop by donating his time and property to the troop. He truly believed in the value these organizations provide our youth...

Tactile and visual teaching aides make learning easier, faster, more permanent and a lot more interesting. Good job and great teaching.

I was asked if I could make a cut out of Virginia to the same scale so the kids could relate it to their home state... I don't think I have enough stock to laminate a 2 foot x 4 foot blank...

I am also working on making game boards for a game called Konane, sometimes referred to as 'Hawaiian Checkers'. I only have 4 to make by this weekend... it will be close!

The event currently has at least 60 coming, and they will be divided into 8 groups rotating through stations. Some of the stations include games, food tasting, volcanoes, lei making, learning about the language and traditional songs, and learning about natural resources (especially drinking water). There will also be 2 hula instructors performing.

Hopefully they will have a blast and learn something!

The oil and wax really brought out the figure of the wood.

Smells good as well!
