Vocational school

These pictures are from a vocational school just a short distance from the basewith woodworking and rug weaving the choice of courses. Note the planer, band saw and generator - rare luxuries since there is no electricity. Most of the work is done by hand - the top picture shows some of the hand tools and a cricket bat someone probably made during their spare time. The chairs were ordered by the district center and are stout enough to hold up the proverbial fat lady they roll out when its over. Several of the soldiers commissioned some chairs of their own design; the going rate I believe was $30 for a custom made chair. Behind the planer is an intricately carved bed headboard - worth a look for the wood carving enthusiasts.
