Well, at least in my area "Wood shop" is a thing of the far past in any pub
lic school. Between liability, funding and of course the new total focus on
teaching self esteem and ethnic studies, there isn't any room for actual u
seful skills being taught.
Maybe you can see if there are any local wood working clubs that might have
some idea. Yes, I think something like College of the Redwoods or other re
spected organization might have a conduit for this stuff if you pre-arrange
it with them. Maybe get involved in charitable time/effort now with such a
n org so you have some real connection to the org.
