After all of these years teaching there's still a bit of apprehension whenever I start a new class or meet a student for the first time.

There's an even mix of male/female in this class with four of each. Skill levels range from novice to those with quite a bit of experience that want to add some hand tool skills to their repertoire. The goal for the first to sessions is to try to keep the class pretty much at the same place on their project which is this bench hook:
