RCWA Delivers Special Project to YFS. 10-22-2018

Special Project for YFS:  32 crates for event decorating

The crate was designed by Jerry, Danny, Ken and others during a break at the Spearfish Knecht GAV Event on 10-13-2018.  Changes were made to the original concept, and a Bill of Materials drafted on Sample Parts.  The first Prototype was glued up - without nails.  Parts were cut by Danny Green and Jerry Hood prior to the workshop.  The crates were assembled during our Saturday Toy Workshop on 10-20-2018 at the Shop at the Club for Boys.  Dennis, Jerry, and Ken built a Jig for Production Assembly.  Then the crew on the Assembly Line - Jerry, Darwin, Paul, and Ken – got busy and, the rest is history.  Paul Douglas delivered the crates to YFS on the following Monday, 10-22-2018.
