Scoil Pól Wood Projects
Second Year Wooden Stools
As another year comes to a close for these students there are more fabulous pieces created in the Woodwork room in Scoil Pol. The latest project was a hand-crafted stool where the 2nd years got to choose the designs on the legs and whether they wanted the top in timber or upholestry.
We are very grateful to the Hayes family of Ballylanders who supplied us with the foam for the seats of our stools.
