Senior Tyler Nakken Demonstrates Woodworking Skills

High school senior Tyler Nakken, an independent study student working for the second consecutive year with technology teacher Jesse Eilbeck, recently completed several outstanding woodworking projects, including a segmented bowl made from black walnut and poplar wood that he buffed to a high shine using food-safe finish, and a traditional tea candle stand with a red oak base and tiers constructed from sapele mahogany and black walnut.

“Tyler is a focused youth in my shop classes, always striving to produce quality work,” said Eilbeck.

Nakken plans to join the military after graduation this June.
