Juvenile Delinquent Woodworkers Crafty Cutlery Trays from Detention

CLICK TO ENLARGE SULLEN CRAFTY DELINQUENTS
Juvenile Delinquent Idle hands make young thieves and check-forgers, so a group of sullen juvies here earn fresh air while showing off their woodworking projects.  I always thought those old cutlery trays were made by farmers.  Now I know they were sent home with mom on visiting day.

Our early youthful offenders have also crafted magazine racks, stools and useful household objects.  Each one looks like he is taking shop as a ruse to carve a fake gun or sharpen a shiv...and numerous light beatings have taught them all to stand with their hands behind their backs.

Grates on the windows keep the neighborhood safe from antisocial personality disorder.

The one checked-off (and ticked off) third from the end is Junior.  He is making good progress.
