Our college is partnered with a carpentry college in The Congo, and one of the commitments is to give every student who graduates a box of brand new, good quality tools. To get finance this we make wooden stuff and sell it. The Congolese students get tools and a good trade for life, we get experience making interesting stuff. Everybody wins.

Apparently cutting boards in the shape of pigs are a big seller.

I’m part of the team at the exhibition this weekend. My job is to cut accurate dovetails all day while answering questions intelligently. What can possibly go wrong?
