I was working in our Shirlington showroom a few months ago when I received a rather odd phone call. One of our previous customers was entering to win a grant from the American Physical Society. This was not a typical type of phone call.
He was entering the grant with the help of his family to win money to build a new, improved Penny Theater for the Noyes Children’s Library Foundation and was hoping we would help. I told him I was interested but I did not have a clue what a Penny Theater was… do you?
Long story short the Noyes Children’s Library Foundation and this wonderful family use the Penny Theater to teach children all kinds of lessons. The theater is small enough to be carried from one place to another yet large enough to host a whole play on it using small caricatures.
I and the rest of Hardwood Artisans believe education very important. If you are learning the mathematics of building hardwood furniture, why the sky is blue or the technique of social marketing it is important to keep on learning. I knew Hardwood Artisans had to help with this great project. I knew we could build an enhanced, updated an perfect Penny Theater. Here is what an older one looks like:
