Donations of hardwoods benefit CV students

On behalf of the students in the CVHS Woodworking courses I want to thank Michael Thompson of Urban Tree Care for coordinating efforts to acquire and donate hardwood lumber to Crescent Valley. He and his crew felled the trees and Michael suggested that the logs be donated to CV for use in student projects.

Thanks also to Karen Kraemer and Ken Graves who donated five black walnut logs and Katie and Steve Kohl, who donated a cherry tree from a neighboring property. Many thanks also go to James Minter who sawed the logs with the help of CV students. And finally, thank you to Mike Milota from the OSU Wood Science and Engineering Department for drying the lumber in their kiln.

As a result, our students have more than 700 board feet of high-quality black walnut and 120 board feet of cherry for use in their projects.
