Commercial Forest Products Donates Hardwood to Wood Shop Program
Southern-California based wood products company donates materials to budget-strapped wood shop class.
By: Stephen Ondich
Petzold teaches the only remaining intermediate school wood shop class in the Saddleback Valley Unified School District. He connected with CFP President, Stephen Ondich through www.woodworkingteachers.net, an online forum. According to Ondich, "Due to budget constraints, many wood shop classes have ceased. Those that remain have little funding. Darin probably has the only wood shop class in California that is working with honduras mahogany this year."
Petzold commented "There is no way Serrano Intermediate School could have afforded such wood. The students and I are very grateful."
