The big grins from eight grade Ava Lambert as she finishes her first project and soon-to-be pizza cutter on the Rikon lathe donated by the Guild of New Hampshire Woodworkers.  

The Guild has supplied complete machinery grants to three southern New Hampshire schools, while supporting tool grants to four others.

Accompanying these large grants were additional chucks, tool rests, faceplates, safety spurs (Jon Siegel's design) and personal protective equipment provided by the Granite State Woodturners, the Seacoast Woodturners Club and The Home Depot. 

The funding for these grants is derived entirely from raffle profits realized from donations made by wondrously generous Guild members and sold at the Sunapee Fair.
