Conner finally (after over a year) got a project approved and started on his Eagle Project. Last summer he was working with the East Bay Regional Parks about marking the mileage on the Canal Trail. They strung him along for about 4 months and then said it wasn't going to work out. Then, he tried to do a reading circle for a Montessori School in our area. Two months later ... that wasn't working out either. Then, he head about the wood shop at El Dorado. It had been closed for several years, but were planning on having wood shop classes again this year. Their tables needed to be refinished desperately! Conner went and talked to the principal, got the project approved and started on it quickly with the help of Bro. Marquardson and Bro. Mattson.
He started on a Friday evening (after doing a test run on a table a few weeks before).
There are seven tables and they had to have all the things taken out of them, scraped and then turned over and reattached.
After making sure they had them cleaned up, they cut off an inch off all sides to create a clean surface and then they attached a masonite board to the tops.
He had a lot of help over the two days (and the planning) from lots of wonderful people!

Ta da! All done!!
Now on to planning the party!
