First Day Clipboard Project

This is a project to put students to work on the first day of
class.  It's a great motivator.  Rather than sit and
listen to the teacher on the first day of school, like all other
classes, I put them right to work as soon as I take first day

Our project is to create a simple 1/4 page clipboard.  I
also provide sheets of paper to finish the product.  It is a
simple hand tool project with the use of a jig on a Drill Press
that is completely enclosed for safety.

Although safety tests are not complete, which I realize will
scare some, I have never had a problem with setup in 27 years.

The idea of going home with a project the first day does wonders
for the start to the class.
