Many of Dad’s Students still have their WOOD CREATIONS.
I’m gathering PHOTOS of all these CREATIONS.  (please send me yours!)

Virginia Bachrach Table and Stool from Wolfie shop class
Virginia Bachrach
“My much beloved table and stool.”

Bill Weber Class of ’53 
Fourth Grade Project “Stool”

Ruth Galanter Truck.
Ruth says:
“The Truck is made from a cheese box.  I confess that I liked painting them at least as much as the woodwork, but I do remember enjoying being able to actually attach wheels.”

Ruth Galanter Swing.
Made in First Grade. Kermit added later.

Good perspective on the not totally round bowl.”

Steve says:
Note the chisel marks from going a bit too deep”

Steve says:
“Notice the flat edge, from sawing from the block of wood and not being able to sand it round.”
Steve goes on to say:
“I wish we were able to better execute to Wolfie’s instruction and skill. But not bad for elementary school and no power tools. And it is something that I just love and have carried around for 55 years.”

  3. Alright, I’ll come straight to the point. This is so cool. I loved shop. Wish I had Wolfie as a teacher.
