    Eric Matson - Fine Woodworking - Rio Grande Comm College Jan 14 2015 at 1:00 pm

    in Education

    Business Talk features Eric Mature, Faculty with the Fine Woodworking Technology at Rio Grande Community College on January 14, 2105 at 1:00 pm


    The University of Rio Grande's Fine Woodworking program prepares and enlightens students with the skills necessary to be successful woodworkers.  These skills will be developed in a "hands on" experience where most of the students' time is spent in the shop building fine furniture.  The program operates like a professional, custom furniture shop using machine for dimensioning stock and increasing efficiency.  Hand tools are used to cut fine joinery and create the many fine details that machines can't duplicate.


    The FW program design and build jigs to use with the table saw, shaper, and other machines to increase safety and production.  Dovetail joinery, turning, carving, and other visual details are done by hand.  We feel that learning this balance between hand tools and machinery is the key to making fine furniture.


    The program offers a one-year certificate and a two-year Associate's Degree.  The FW classes, along with courses in math, science, and communications greatly increase the marketability of graduates of the Fine Woodworking program.

    ILP Independent Living Program Re schedule with ASKNOD

    in Military

    Asknod will be our guest. 


    The basics of the Independent Living Program . The nuts and bolts. What controls it. Why Bill gets a tractor and why Jim gets something to pull his socks up with and a grab bar next to the crapper. This is VR&E 101 for beginners. Most VR&E employees will steadfastly deny it until you point it out. Even then they think it has to have some magic “vocational”-i.e. of or having to do with working, training or preparing to get work- connotation. This is where they lack training. If you only had one copy of the Bible and the guys up at the monastery were in charge of the production of same, you’d have no idea if a chapter was missing. If no one told you, Mr. GS 8 VR&E Intake specialist in Oz , Kansas, that there was a program for the severely disabled that entailed avocational pursuits (read hobbies), you’d be forgiven. When the guys in charge in Wichita tell you there’s no such thing, you have an agency-wide conspiracy to suppress the true scope of a valuable program.


    We’re going to learn how they deny. Why they deny. Where all the money goes that ISN’T used for ILP and the scalawag salaries paid for this travesty of justice. As some know, I am appealing my denial for a greenhouse to the BVA. It could just as easily have been a riding lawnmower, a woodworking shop or a photography suite of software and a computer to assemble beautiful graphic video productions on an amateur scale. The actual pastime is immaterial. The pleasure and mental well-being derived from it is the essence of the program, always has been and is now being demolished as “too rich for our blood.”
