We'll be wrapping up the Baloo Building requirement in this meeting – putting to use the woodworking skills that we learned in part 1 by building a fun project. In this meeting, the boys will be building a ping pong ball launcher. It will require them to: 1) follow a step by step direction set that's provided; 2) use a handsaw to cut pieces of lumber to an exact measurement, ensuring the pieces are square; 3) use a coping saw to cut a curve on one of the pieces; 3) using a hand drill, drill 2 holes in a specified spot; 4) pre-drill holes and fasten some of the pieces together with screws and install two eyelets.
I will supply the materials. Please have the boys bring their tool boxes and what tools they have. This is a project, so the boys will need your help.
