    They didn't offer the electric class 4 years later when I was in Jr High School so I took wood shop instead. When my sister moved out on her own during college and needed a cutting board mom gave her the butcher block one I had made in that class. (mom preferred a ceramic one because she was worried about germs and such). Sister still uses that cutting board that I made 40 years ago, so I suppose we've now both benefited equally from the other's shop class experience!

    The real question that just occurred to me is that I wonder why my mom didn't save my cutting board for me. I realize that she very much believed in the traditional roles of "the husband goes to work to support the family and the wife raises the kids and keeps house". But still, surely she could have imagined that once I was an adult I might need to cook for myself for some period of time and then gotten married and then had a wife that could use it. And honestly, between me and my sister when we were kids I was the one that was always eager to help Mom out in the kitchen. At this point I guess c'est la vie. Maybe I should see if the local community college offers woodworking classes. Maybe this fall I could take one and make myself a second cutting board!
