Ray M posted a topic in Contractors, Building Trades and Materials, Home MaintenanceI'm having a custom-built kitchen with wooden support for granite countertop. Apparently also some plywood was used as support that attracted termites. So the wood needs to be replaced. Any suggestions of who can do this? Who's the foremost wood expert here or in all of Panama who's using hardwood only and might be able to rebuild the kitchen. Also, who might be able to remove and reassemble the countertop? Some contacts are highly appreciated. Thank you.
Calling all carpenters and/or mechanics to volunteer to teach part-time at the Arturo Miro Rehabilitation Center for young men in Potrerillos Arriba. No prior teaching skills needed, just a strong desire to help teach a skill to young Panamanian boys who want to learn a trade. Vocational education is a "way out" for most of these young boys who can only improve their lives by learning a skill. Workshops for both carpentry and mechanics have already been established and now need volunteers to step-up to the plate and help out. If you speak some Spanish and can spare just a few hours a week to help teach a skill to young Panamanian boys, the Rehabilitation Center desperately needs your help. For more information, please all Willy Schreiber at 6781-9601.
I am looking for a wood worker to help mentor my Indigenous worker to help him make bee boxes and frames using circular saws and other more automated equipment. This work is not difficult but it must be done with accuracy as bees are small and every 1mm counts. We have templates and drawings that have been used in the past as well as good models to copy. The gentleman is skilled and intelligent but does not know how to use woodworking machines and needs some tutoring and mentoring help. I am willing to pay in cash, coffee, honey or mead or some combination. I think the time commitment would be initially a couple of days a week for maybe 2 -3 weeks and then just to be available by phone or come by occasionally as new challenges arise or to stay in touch. We always have wood based projects so I would like to build a relationship with the right person.
