Patio furniture build, volunteer training - 795 Edmund Street

August 22, 2014 was a patio furniture build. The goal was to boost confidence and ability of volunteers inexperienced using carpentry-based tools. They were taught how to use specific tools properly and instructed on patio furniture plans, which they used to create a raised planter, a picnic table with attached benches and an Adirondack chair. There were expert and experienced volunteer leaders on site to assist and guide the volunteers.
