I lost my job a couple of months ago, downsizing... So far nothing else has come up, though I've sent out numerous applications.

Anyway, today, the pastor of my church asked me to consider teaching woodworking and carpentry skills to a community of under privileged young men and boys, Thai and Burmese, that live around a graveyard. His thoughts are to do fundraising for the tools, and provide the premises, while I provide the teaching etc. I do like the idea very much.

I have some thoughts on initial projects, like a carpenters tool box like this one: **LINK** and a mallet like one I've already made for myself and is lasting well: **LINK**

Does anyone have any advice on how to go about this? I notice from some articles in the magazine that some people have done this kind of thing already, but I sure would like to converse with someone who has done this kind of work.

Also, any idea on any other good projects that might work for these people?
