This Week in the Classroom: Swingin’ Chalkboard Signs
Here’s a few shots of a project build I did a few months ago. The challenge was to build a recycling container from completely recycled materials. I picked up some nice crepe myrtle branches and immediately saw a V shaped stand with a small basket to collect recyclable goods.
To bad we never did finish it. We got all the way to the crossbeam. Spring break came with all the lassitude of a wilted Texas flower in August. We never stood a chance.
Eventually, I snookered a student into repainting an old cabinet door into a chalkboard sign. Then I parked that sucker in front of the toolshed. I used crepe myrtle cut-offs, a some 2x12s, some brown paint, plywood and a few pulled screws.
Make it safe & keep the rubberside down this weekend.
