Why Woodshop?

In my many years of wood working I have found that kids of all ages love to build. There is a pride and sense of accomplishment when making something with your own hands and watching it progress as it is meticulously crafted. Kids are no different. Building something for themselves or as a gift for another is something they will gladly take time from TV to do.

Spring 2018 Project

Double Decker Bus



Make way for the Double Decker Bus!

A common sight in London and other European cities, used to transport more passengers than a single level bus, these buses are often open topped, giving tourists a better view for sightseeing. Your passengers can be seated upstairs or downstairs and you can store your special belongings in TWO secret compartments.

Customize your bus with seats, headlights and exhaust to make it one of a kind.

Plenty of cutting, sanding, and gluing for this project.

Take a trip to woodshop and build your very own classic Double Decker Bus!
