If you are a member or a visitor of the Rochester Makerspace, you may have noticed a growing collection of loose wood pieces cluttering the corner of the woodshop.
Jonathan Homer of the Boy Scouts, Troop 122, offered to help solve this problem, by working with the Rochester Makerspace to build a wood storage cart for its woodshop.
Jonathan directed a small team of 3-5 people per meeting to complete the project in 4 months. There were 3 phases in this project, presenting the proposal to the Board of Directors, the plan to complete the project and a report given to the Eagle Scouts.
Jonathan and his team focused on sturdiness and craftsmanship when assembling the cart, and even added a safety feature to prevent heavy boards of wood from tipping over the side of the cart. It is estimated that the storage cart can hold up to 2000 pounds!
He says that this project has helped him learn how to lead better, and develop his time management skills.
Jonathan presented the cart on October 3rd to the Board, and is soon to give the final report to the Eagle Scouts.
A big THANKS goes out to Jonathan and his team for building a wood storage cart for the Rochester Makerspace!
