Waldorf Woodworking

I went to visit the Upper Valley Waldorf School in Quechee, VT to see their woodworking shop.
 Waldorf Schools are sort of famous for bringing woodworking to kids - but doesn't have kids use any power tools. They do a lot of woodcarving instead - where kids carve bowls, spoons, etc.  I took a few pictures...

Ingenious way to store saws.
Hand drill...

Huge cast iron vice attached to a stump.

Mallets for hitting chisels.

This is actually a picture of a different Waldorf School woodworking room that I got off the web but it is pretty typical..
